From Chicago Tribune
Prompted by ongoing complaints about noxious diesel exhaust at Union Station, federal authorities are testing the air at Chicago's busiest commuter center to build a case for a potential legal crackdown.

During the next month, investigators from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will be walking station platforms wearing portable devices that measure lung-damaging soot. What they find could more accurately pinpoint health risks posed by acrid blue clouds of pollution that hover between trains ferrying nearly 130,000 commuters every weekday.
