Air Quality Measurements to Mitigate Black Carbon Concentrations in Near-Road Utah Schools
STI developed an air quality monitoring plan, conducted baseline monitoring of the pollutant concentrations inside and outside the classrooms, and summarized and presented the findings to the stakeholders. STI then evaluated the existing ventilation systems throughout the four schools and made recommendations to improve the systems. STI also measured PM2.5 concentrations inside and outside of one of the classrooms. Future monitoring will be performed to evaluate the air quality impact of the MVC traffic once the roadway is completed.
