South Coast AQMD Temporarily Suspends Hexavalent Chromium Monitoring in Paramount

The City of Paramount has been informed that, due to COVID-19, South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has temporarily suspended monitoring of hexavalent chromium, an airborne industrial chemical regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

“COVID-19 has affected every aspect of our lives, and our partner agencies have also felt the impacts. We expect SCAQMD to resume monitoring when COVID-19 conditions improve,” said Paramount City Manager John Moreno.

The City recognizes the challenges that SCAQMD is facing as a result of COVID-19 public health concerns, and assures residents that all necessary measures are being taken to protect the environmental health and safety of the Paramount community.
