Town of Erie to Present Air Quality Data to AQCC July 21
Air quality monitoring research from local governments including the Town of Erie will be presented to the Air Quality Control Commission (AQCC) today, Thursday, July 21, at 9 a.m. Representatives from Boulder County, Broomfield, Erie, and Longmont will explain how they have responded to concerns from residents about air quality, health, and climate change with their own independent air quality studies.
- The Town of Erie will share details of their monitoring program designed to monitor air conditions near hundreds of active and plugged and abandoned wells in and near the Town.
- Boulder County’s studies show the link between ozone exceedances and elevated emissions alongside no decline in emissions from 2017 through 2021.
- The City and County of Broomfield’s study found that individuals living less than one mile from multi-well, horizontal oil and gas sources report upper respiratory and acute health symptoms more often than residents living at greater distances.
- The City of Longmont will share key findings from their air quality study, with a focus on oil and gas-related pollutants.
The online meeting is open to the public and scheduled for 9 am on Thursday, July 21. The meeting agenda, link, and the full presentation is available on the AQCC website. The public can send written comments to the AQCC by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
