Southern Delaware County Air Monitoring Project

Printer-friendly version

In 1994, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in conjunction with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), initiated an environmental risk study for the City of Chester, Pennsylvania. At the beginning of 1995, DEP, in cooperation with EPA, began a study of the air in the City of Chester and Borough of Marcus Hook. The goal of this most recent study is to try to learn more about the quality of the air in Chester and Marcus Hook, and to determine what pollutants are present. A third site located at Swarthmore was added to the study to provide a comparison to Chester and Marcus Hook. Swarthmore is located in the same air basin, but not as close to large industrial sources.
