This is great. It has been very onerous to report industrial smells to the Allegheny County Health Department. It had always felt lonely as if you were the only one caring about the smell, and there was never feedback on your report from the County. This app will not only map where the reports are coming from so that you can see for yourself that you’re not crazy, but also will send the report to the County. This will also help the County better predict when to send inspectors.
