Hello Stockton CSC,
Passing along some information from CARB.
Hello Stockton Community,
California Air Resources Board (CARB) is happy to share some good news about the Stockton-Hazelton air monitoring site. CARB, California Department of General Services, and the San Joaquin County Public Health Services property manager recently met to perform a site evaluation and discuss lease terms. Stockton community members have strongly expressed a desire to keep the monitoring site at its current location, and CARB has determined this would also best meet our monitoring objectives as it is now a viable option. The monitoring station will remain at the property but be relocated to a different site (tentatively northeast of the current station).
While everyone is working quickly, a lease can take anywhere from a few months to a year to complete. Once the lease is final, site improvements can begin, such as getting power installed and transporting the enclosure to the property. The nearby building is still being demolished, so CARB must vacate the current site sometime in mid-summer. It is possible that the existing station has to be taken offline before the new one is operational. This may result in some data gaps, but we are doing our best to minimize this.
We would like to sincerely thank you for your recommendations, time, and support in our pursuit of a new location for the CARB air monitoring station. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Skott Wall via email firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (916) 720-2965 for more information.
