Description Section 302 (16) of the 2018 Supplemental Operating Budget directed Ecology to conduct a “multiyear study to distinguish the sources of emissions of the toxic air pollutant that poses the greatest cancer risk at the air monitoring station that is located closest to a port in the state with the highest volume of container traffic in domestic and foreign waterborne trade.” To meet this requirement, Ecology designed a three-year monitoring study of fine particulate matter and its chemical components at Puget Sound Clean Air Agency’s Alexander Avenue monitoring site, adjacent to the Port of Tacoma.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
