State Funds Paying For More Air Pollution Monitoring In San Diego
Excerpts from KPBS article
San Diego County officials are getting a much more robust pollution tracking system, thanks to a new state grant.
San Diego County officials hope to have a much better picture of the region’s air pollution problems soon.
That’s because the California Air Resources Board is paying for 15 new movable air pollution monitors that can help pinpoint problems.
San Diego County Supervisor Nathan Fletcher said all of the county’s residents deserve clean air.
“If we can monitor it, we can better address it, but the monitoring alone will not improve the air quality,” said Fletcher. “It’s the data we get from monitoring that will hold us accountable for actions we take to actually improve air quality.”
