Air Quality Program

METALS


two samplers
The samplers draw a measured quantity of ambient air into the housing and through an 8x10 inch filter during a 24-hr sampling period.


The Air Program is concerned with source characterization, exposure levels and health impacts to community members from heavy metals such as nickel, cadmium, lead, zinc, and chromium, contained in the air. The first three years two metals samplers were setup at a Raquette Point resident's property. Since then the samplers have been setup at the air monitoring shed located behind the headstart/daycare building next to the group home on Library Road.

The sampling technique for collecting metals is housed in a shelter with a motors and timer. The samplers draw a measured quantity of ambient air into the housing and through an 8x10 inch filter during a 24-hr sampling period. The sampler flow rate and the geometry of the shelter favor the collection of particles up to 25-50mm.

Because of the sampling performed over the years the SRMT can designate its air quality as in Attainment which means the air in our area is within the federal standards.
