Ezra Prentice Air Monitoring is Underway!


The NYSDEC has undertaken an air quality monitoring study to examine the local sources of air pollution impacting Albany South End residents. Most of the monitoring effort is aimed at looking at emissions from motor vehicles and Port activities with equipment to monitor for particles and gasses from these sources. In addition to air monitoring, NYSDEC staff are increasing inspections of motor vehicles for safety and for emissions violations. DEC Staff are also using new technologies to look for emissions from fuel distribution facilities as well as other industries in the region.

The NYSDEC has set up a webpage to learn more about the study. Updated information can be found here:
