This document reports on ambient air toxics monitoring and the resulting human health risk assessment in four North Birmingham, Alabama, communities. This study was designed as an extension of a previous effort, the national School Air Toxics (SAT) study, which focused on assessing outdoor air pollution near schools.

Research suggests air pollution caused by NO2 and PM could ca deaths per year. Polly Billington, director of UK, said the report should be a wake-up call to policy makers. monitoring study of a large number of toxic air pollutants at four locations in the Jefferson County, Alabama, area.

The four sites were East Thomas, North Birmingham, Providence and Shuttlesworth. The purpose of this study, designated the Birmingham Air Toxics Study (BATS), was to assess the potential health effects resulting.

The GAIA air quality monitoring stations are using high-tech laser particle sensors to measure in real-time PM pollution, which is one of the most harmful air pollutants.

Very easy to set up, they only require a WIFI access point and a USB power supply. Alabama industrial facilities released more than 82 million pounds of toxic material into the air, land and water inaccording to an analysis released this month by the U.

Once connected, air pollution levels are reported instantaneously and in real-time on our maps. The Air Division also administers the delegable provisions of the Clean Air Act, the federal law that regulates air emissions from stationary and mobile sources.

The Air Division has primary jurisdiction over all air emission sources within the State, except those emission sources located within Jefferson County or the City of Huntsville. The Air Pollution Control Programs in these areas are.

ADEM Attn: Air Division Post Office Box Montgomery, Alabama () () fax [email protected] What is air pollution Air pollution comes from a range of sources, including some nearby, like vehicles and other sources within the city, and some further afield.

The proportion of pollution that reaches us from each source depends on the weather, the location, the time of day, and a number of other factors. Birmingham’s pollution hotspots have been revealed as campaigners call for a crackdown on emissions in the city.

Data obtained by Birmingham Friends of. The present Federal and Alabama air pollution regulatory systems focus on “criteria air pollutants” (particulate matter, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, lead, and sulfur dioxide) and “hazardous air pollutant s.” Ambient air quality standards and implementation plans, including emission limitations to achieve those standards, haveFile Size: 5MB.

Technical report}, author = {Keagy, D.M. and Schueneman, J.J.}, abstractNote = {At the request of local officials, a survey of the air pollution situation in Birmingham and Jefferson County, Alabama, was made by the Community Air Pollution Program of the Public Health Service.

The American Lung Association listed Birmingham as No. 14 on its list of U.S. cities with the highest levels of year-round particulate air pollution. Air pollution continues to be a significant problem in the city of Birmingham, as it has been for decades.

No one enjoys walking the streets of Birmingham only to taste or smell the smoke and particulates in the air, not to mention the damaging effects to one’s health. Air pollution’s impact on “at risk” populations in the Birmingham metro area with chronic lung disease and other health issues is staggering.

From that same State of the Air report, in Jefferson and Shelby counties alone, thousands of residents are placed in danger, when we have bad air pollution. The EPA is moving forward with a coordinated approach to evaluate the environmental condition and potential environmental impacts, in certain areas of the North Birmingham, Fairmont, Collegeville, and Harriman Park neighborhoods, as well as portions of Five-Mile Creek and Harriman Park ditch, located in and around Birmingham, Jefferson County, Alabama.

AIRNow - Birmingham, AL Air Quality - AQI: Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups ( - ) Although general public is not likely to be affected at this AQI range, people with lung disease, older adults and children are at a greater risk from exposure to ozone, whereas persons with heart and lung disease, older adults and children are at greater risk from the presence of particles in the air.

The MSc in Air Pollution Management and Control is taught by staff from the School of Geography, Earth & Environmental Sciences.

Teaching is delivered through lectures, workshops and problem sessions, and off-campus visits to sites with specific air pollution problems (e.g. an incinerator, landfill site, local air quality monitoring station). Alabama respiratory disease and air pollution study.

It will support the application of these to specific case studies across the West Midlands, ranging from major. This study examined whether a similar association could be found in the southern United States, with different weather patterns than the previous studies, and examined the sensitivity of the results to different methods of analysis and covariate control.
