Colorado Receives EPA Grant for Air Monitoring in Denver

With a $399,000 grant from the EPA, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment will be able to conduct air toxics measurements in the Globeville, Elyria, and Swansea neighborhoods that are located just adjacent to the I-70/I-25 freeway interchange.

Through the EPA’s Community Air Toxics Monitoring program, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has been awarded a $399,000 grant to help the state perform air toxic measurements in areas surrounding the I-70/I-25 freeway interchange in Denver.

“Local participation in environmental decision-making is critical to building healthy communities,” said Shaun McGrath, EPA’s regional administrator in Denver. “This project will address community concerns about air quality in north Denver neighborhoods and will generate data that will help us understand and reduce exposure to hazardous air pollutants.”

"This is an exciting opportunity to increase our understanding of an important public health issue," said Martha Rudolph, director of environmental programs at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. "We look forward to working with the City and County of Denver on this project to assess air pollution levels and to provide the local community with up to date and relevant information."

CDPHE plans to use the grant to work with both the City and County of Denver to conduct the project that will obtain information on hazardous air pollutants near the highway interchange.
