NY Compressor Station Report
There are 56 operational natural gas compressor stations located in New York State.
Each year, these industrial operations release tons of toxic pollutants - made up of 70 different chemicals - into the environment. These 70 chemicals are linked to 19 of 20 major categories of human disease.
Health care providers practicing in or near areas where compressor stations are operating should be aware of the chemicals being emitted, and the possible health impacts of exposure to those chemicals for their adult and pediatric patients. See the map.
The information on this website is based on the report Health Effects Associated with Stack Chemical Emissions from NYS Natural Gas Compressor Stations: 2008-2014, a technical report prepared for the Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project, a non-profit organization of medical professionals and public health scientists.
