Cleaner Air For Active Kids
Under a grant from the Patagonia Environmental Fund, ShaleTest Environmental Testing (ShaleTest) conducted ambient air quality tests and gas-finder infra-red video for several children’s play areas in North Texas that are located in close proximity to natural gas shale development. In addition, pollution dispersion air modeling has been completed for one location. The data collected will provide a better picture of the exposure and amount of air pollution and toxic contamination for thousands of children. The information gathered will be used to accelerate investigation and action by policymakers and regulators.
