Arvin Air Quality Project

The Arvin Air Quality Project is being conducted on behalf of the Central California Environmental Justice Network to provide air quality monitoring and raise public awareness around the city of Arvin, California. Arvin was ranked by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in 2007 to have the worst ozone air pollution levels in the country. The Arvin Air Quality Project involves the deployment of air quality monitoring sensors to continuously monitor ambient air for particulate matter of the 10 micrometer and 2.5 micrometer size (PM10 and PM2.5), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and total volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The air quality data measured by the sensors are transmitted real-time to .
