Weigh in on air pollution monitoring around refineries
Richmond workshop on Air District's plans to improve and expand air monitoring
Learn more about improving air pollution monitoring in communities near refineries at a meeting planned for
Wednesday, February 21 in Richmond.
This is one of several workshops being held by the
Bay Area Air Quality Management District (Air District)
, the local agency charged with regulating air pollution from stationary sources, such as industry. (See list of workshops below.)
As a member of the Air District board, I led efforts to improve the agency's air monitoring in refinery communities, and am proud that the district has made this a priority. (The Air District board adopted Regulation 12, Rule 15 in 2016 which enables the district and cities to gather more accurate air emissions data from refineries.)
Better air monitoring informs all of us about the health impacts around refineries, which can lead to more effective regulations.
This is your chance to ask questions and provide feedback.
Community input is vital to the process. I hope to see you there.

The Air District has been measuring air quality since 1962 when it established the first regional ambient air monitoring system in the nation. That system, composed of over 30 air quality monitoring stations, has grown to be one of the most comprehensive air monitoring networks in the nation.
Let's all get involved in helping to keep our air safe and clean!
