Some of you may have noticed the new ambient air montior on Ventura Drive in
Chalmette. The Ventura Drive monitor is part of the US EPA consent decree
with Murphy Oi and should be operational by August 15th.
There are two other air monitors in St. Bernard Parish: the "Meraux"
station at Joe Davies Elementary School and the "Ch_Vista" station at
Bluebird Park in Chalmette Vista. These two monitors are maintained by DEQ.
Air sample results for the DEQ stations are accessible after a 2 hour
quality check and post on the DEQ website, on the right hand column menu,
select the ON AIR icon, select Site Data, and select "Meraux" or "Ch_Vista".
Air sample results for the Murphy Oil monitor will post after a 24 hour
quality check and are accessible at this domain.
There is a picture of the Murphy Oil monitoring station in the article link
below and the Public Meeting with Murphy Oil on Tuesday, August 16th, is
expected to include more information.
