Last week, Iowa Public Radio released an intense report about the pollution issues in Muscatine.

Much of the pollution is linked to the Grain Processing Corporation (GPC). This company is currently under investigation by the Environmental Protection Agency for their air and water pollution. GPC provides a huge boost to the local economy, but critics also note that its pollution is causing health issues throughout the community.

Some of the Muscatine residents say the smog burns their eyes and gives them headaches.
