CHALMETTE AIR MONITORING PROJECT

For several weeks in spring 2005, we operated an air monitor and posted the results online. The monitoring project is conducted directly across the street from ExxonMobil's Chalmette Refining on St. Bernard Highway, near what was Rowley Elementary and what is now the site of a massive FEMA trailer park. Air monitoring is essential because before we can do anything about a problem, we need to understand it. We are all familiar with the bad smells coming from direction of ExxonMobil; we cannot do anything about it, though, until we and ExxonMobil know and understand the problem.
