Air Quality Sub-Committee Meetings

  • At the January 31, 2017 Air Quality Sub Committee meeting, members of the public were invited to submit questions to the Sub Committee that would then be responded to and published. The goal was to consolidate a question to a single area and provide responses to the public in a transparent manner that would help other residents who likely have similar questions. Answers for the questions were a result of input from the City Manager, Assistant City Manager, Tetra Tech, and others within the City. Answers have been sent via email to those who provided their emails, but anonymized questions and responses have been posted as well through the Q&A link above.

SCAQMD Audio Files – Community Conference Calls on Hexavalent Chromium

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) held informational conference calls with the Paramount community from November 2016 to January 2018. The goal of the calls (held in both English and Spanish) was to provide updates on the ongoing air monitoring and actions related to the City’s hexavalent chromium issue. As significant progress was made on the issue and there were fewer updates to report, SCAQMD announced the conclusion of the regularly-scheduled calls. 

Below are recordings of past informational conference calls. The .mp3 files for each call can be downloaded on AQMD’s website.
