The District and the City are two separate government agencies but share a long history of cooperating to address community challenges. Neither the District nor the City are experts in air quality matters, and both of these organizations rely on the expertise of environmental regulators to provide information and enforcement on air quality. The City is supportive of all testing that SCAQMD is seeking, especially when it concerns testing the air near our schools.
South Coast Air Quality Management District has positioned monitors near Anaplex and Aerocraft Heat Treating, two firms identified by SCAQMD as sources of elevated hexavalent chromium levels. How long will those monitors remain in place to monitor those businesses?
