This 2-year study funded by CalEPA Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) aims to improve community understanding of air quality at the US-Mexico border region through a community-engaged research process of collecting measurements from 13 next-generation air quality monitors.
The research team includes Casa Familiar, San Diego State University, and the University of Washington.

Our new website will provide residents and government agencies in San Ysidro with real-time air quality data in the form of maps and charts. PM2.5, CO, NO, NO2, and O3 data will be available. Also, concerned citizens and researchers may request access to historical data collected by the air quality monitoring network via the website.
Additionally, data from the San Ysidro monitoring are being provided to the Identifying Violations Affecting Neighborhoods (IVAN) system for integrated air mapping and environmental reporting among different communities in California.
