El Proyecto de Monitoreo de la Calidad del Aire de Lost Hills es uno de los varios esfuerzos que se realizan para comprender y mejorar la calidad del aire en el condado de Kern.

Recursos adicionales incluyen:

Identificación de Violaciones que Afectan a los Vecindarios (IVAN, por sus siglas en inglés) Kern

IVAN Kern es un sistema de monitoreo ambiental que permite a las personas reportar las violaciones de contaminación que observan en su comunidad. IVAN Kern es administrado por la Red de Justicia Ambiental de California Central, un socio del Proyecto de Calidad del Aire de Lost Hills.

Study of Neighborhood Air Near Petroleum Sources (SNAPS) Program

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is developing a project to better characterize air quality in communities near oil and gas operations. The Study of Neighborhood Air near Petroleum Sources (SNAPS) includes limited-term, intensive air quality monitoring with a particular focus on production facilities. This station will be sited at the Lost Hills Department of Water Resources, and will monitor volatile organic compounds (VOCs), criteria air pollutants (including ozone, nitrogen dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide), methane, and particulate matter. One monitor from the Lost Hills Air Quality Project will be sited at this location for calibration and quality assurance during the initiation of the project.

San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District Real Time Air Advisory Network (RAAN)

RAAN is part of the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District and is focused on providing air quality information to the public. Presently, only ozone concentrations are provided by RAAN in Lost Hills.

AirNow Air Quality Index (AQI) Calculator

The AQI tells you how clean or polluted your outdoor air is, along with associated health effects that may be of concern. The AQI translates air quality data into numbers and colors that help people understand when to take action to protect their health. AQI thresholds are shown in the graph on the Data Page of the Lost Hills Air Quality Project site.
