Over the next year, the mobile unit will collect air samples to see if they comply with EPA standards. “This trailer can be parked in different neighborhoods, to collect air quality data, so that we can better understand the specific exposures in these neighborhoods,” said Mara Elana Burstein, deputy director of Environmental Health.
After the assessment, city officials will decide where its next stop will be.
