USC's newspaper, the Daily Trojan, is reporting concern is mounting about the air quality and safety of South Los Angeles residents in light of emissions from a nearby oil field owned by Allenco Energy Co. The oil field increased its production by 400% in 2010 and since then air quality officials have received 251 odor complaints from residents. Those residents have also been experiencing symptoms such as headaches, nosebleeds, and dizziness. The oil wells are just a mile away from USC's campus and many students have noted the poor air quality in the area, stating that they feel out of breath easily. The South Coast Air Quality Management District claims that air samples it tested were harmless, despite citing the facility 15 times.
