Protecting Communities from Air Toxics (also known as the Camden Waterfront South Air Toxics Pilot Project)


Printer-friendly version

NATA results predicted that South Camden is exposed to the highest air toxics exposures in New Jersey. The study employed a suite of inventory, modeling and monitoring methods to identify exposure to air toxics in the neighborhood.  The study also generated a set of risk reduction strategies. South Camden was already an area of concern as an Environmental Justice community. The project report is attached. It is/will be available on the Internet at the following location: http://www.nj.gov/dep/ej/airtoxics.htm. The author of the report is Joann Held, Project Manager, Bureau of Air Quality Evaluation, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, P.O. Box 027, Trenton, NJ 08625; telepnone number (609) 633-1110.
