Urban Community Air Toxics Monitoring Project, Paterson City, NJ (UCAMPP)


Printer-friendly version

The overall objective of the Urban Community Air Toxics Monitoring Project, Paterson City, NJ (UCAMPP) is to obtain data which will assist the NJDEP in formulating risk reduction strategies related to air toxics. UCAMPP will determine which pollutants are a health concern in an urban environment, where they come from, and then identify risk reduction strategies. This will be accomplished through the characterization of local air toxics related to different land use patterns in a highly industrialized urban community. Air toxics monitors will be strategically placed at monitoring stations in community-oriented locations that will capture industrial, commercial and mobile source dominated emissions. Two of the monitoring stations will be located at Paterson public schools allowing UCAMPP to measure the community's potential for exposure. Monitoring will occur every six days over the course of 1 year.
