Citizens in the Pottstown area have expressed concern about air emission
from local facilites. The DEP established this site to measure the concentration
of selected toxic compounds in the air. These concentrations will be compared
to other areas and used to estimate the risk for cancer and non-cancer health
effects. In addition, school classes and interested citizens will be able to access
the weather station data and air pollution measurements. This could provide an
education opportunity for interested students.
Note: Sampling at
the Pottstown site ended 3/7/07. Please refer to the "Next Steps" section
of the 2nd Report listed below.
