Air Quality Monitoring Services

On September 21, 2021, the City Council unanimously voted to award a contract for air monitoring services to T and B Systems.  T and B Systems’ brings years of experience in providing high-quality air monitoring services. For the next year, T and B Systems will take air samples in five locations on a weekly basis throughout the City to monitor levels of hexavalent chromium. Here is a running log of monitoring results

It should be noted that the AQMD has stated that concerns would be raised if there are readings above 1.0 over three consecutive samplings, and that any readings below that level are considered as relatively normal “background” levels.
