A Hyper-Local Air Monitoring Network for Cheverly, MD
Seeking to address concerns regarding air pollution related to local industrial activities and traffic, the goal of this study is to develop a hyper-local air quality monitoring network in Cheverly, Maryland. The network will use low-cost real-time sensors to provide baseline air quality data that can be used for understanding pollution levels near sources of concern, educate residents, inform decision-making about future industrial expansion, and aid current mitigation efforts. Community concerns are focused on emissions from local industrial sites (e-waste and scrap metal recycling as well as concrete block and batch facilities) and commuter traffic in the region. The CEEJH team will utilize Airbeam, Purple Air, and Aeroqual sensors to measure air pollutants throughout the region. See below for more details.
