Community Meeting on Community Air Monitoring Initiative Progress

Opportunities for Public Input and Review of Work Underway in Mount Vernon/Yonkers/New Rochelle
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) announced a meeting to provide progress updates for communities participating in the 2022-23 Statewide Community Air Monitoring Initiative. Mobile air monitoring began in September 2022 in Mount Vernon/Yonkers/New Rochelle. This first round meeting will help DEC gather community input to target emission sources and future strategies to reduce air pollution in the community, including the greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change. 
At the meeting, DEC staff will provide an overview of the initiative and present a preliminary overview of the first quarter of air monitoring results specific to each community. Information presented will include how and where the air monitoring is conducted on the street level and how DEC will compile and analyze the data to identify potential contributors of emissions for each pollutant being monitored. Preliminary data collection is now underway and results will be provided once additional information is compiled. 
DEC will also provide an update on progress of establishing community advisory committees to engage with local stakeholders throughout this initiative. DEC will continue to hold regular meetings over the next year to update the community on the progress of the air monitoring and to provide a forum for input. Staff from DEC's Division of Air Resources and the Office of Environmental Justice will be available to answer questions and respond to feedback.
