We are pleased to be providing 15 Flow 2 air monitors that will be used. These monitors can detect Volatile Organic Compounds, a variety of gaseous chemicals, some of which may have short- and long-term adverse health effects. Once the data is gathered, we will provide graphs and maps of localized air quality snapshots. Join us  over Zoom June 23 to review the data collected from the Sunnyside, OST – South Union and Historic Fifth Ward communities.
