How Good is Our Air ?
On July 12, 2017, 7th Graders in UW Tacoma Math Science Leadership program will be performing an air monitoring exercise in the Kenmore area. This one day event is an effort to raise awareness of industrial pollutants in our residential area and what risks they may pose to our health.
The students will be at various sites around town from 10:30am (Log Boom Park) to 12:30 (City Hall) taking air samples and questioning passersby regarding health issues. From 12:30 to 1:20 they will be at Kenmore City Hall hearing local speakers discuss our regional pollution issues. If you see them out sampling, say hello, take their survey, or stop in at the City Hall to say hi and listen to the speakers.
Results from the study will be available the following week and the students will be presenting their findings at University of Washington Tacoma.
This event is being hosted by PERK – People for an Environmentally Responsible Kenmore. For further information about the event or the results contact:
