Benicia refinery activists have been working many long years to get an emissions monitoring station up and running. And now, finally, it’s up!
The board of the Benicia Community Air Monitoring invites you to join them for a webinar introducing the now fully operational, state-of-the-art Benicia monitoring station. Their panel of experts will provide insight on the station, which is now recording real-time air quality data for Benicia and the surrounding community. They will also present the recently launched BCAMP website, which displays collected data and offers other resources as well.
Everyone is free to attend, so feel free to share the link. Register here or via the QR code on the graphic.
Our congratulations to the dedicated Benicia activists who worked for years to make this happen. Finally, they’ll be able to see what’s in their air. This couldn’t be more timely, given Valero’s ongoing concealment of its toxic emissions, and the infamously slow response time of our air pollution regulators.
Read KQED’s coverage of this scandalous situation here. In a nutshell, it seems that Valero released excess levels of very hazardous chemicals for more than 15 years before the Bay Area Air Quality Management District took note. And then the Air District took another three years to alert local communities.
Now community members are doing it for themselves.
