CLAIM: The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) removed the air monitors from the City of Paramount – which were in place to detect levels of hexavalent chromium – in early December 2020 and the City has been lax in demanding that at least some of them be returned. At the same time, the City has done nothing to shut down highly toxic metal companies near schools and homes, as opposed to the City of Irvine, which has asked SCAQMD for air monitors and moved quickly to revoke the business license of a facility emitting bad odors near a residential neighborhood.
