Assessment of Air Quality on Tribal Lands
This grant is to continue to fund the Aroostok Band of Micmac Air program. The Tribe currently operates a real-time air monitoring system a Particulate Matter 2.5 (PM2.5) Ambient Air Monitoring Network Development and Implementation monitor, and Ozone monitor, a met-one weather station, and will be installing a network air development monitor. The monitoring efforts of the Tribe in Aroostook County Maine are important not only for the Tribe, but also the surrounding community. Aroostook County has some of the highest rates of asthma in the country but very little air monitoring has been conducted to date. The Tribe has coordinated with local media outlets so that they can provide information to the Tribal members and the general public concerning air quality. The Tribe is also monitoring the levels of mold and pollen so that this information can also be shared with the public through local media outlets. This application requests $83,000 for the program: $50,000 in additional funding and $33,000 which was already awarded as in-kind funds to a national contract on behalf of the Aroostook Band of Micmac Indians for the monitor on 3/21/05.
