Air Quality Advisory

The Air District is issuing an air quality advisory for smoke for the far South Bay, including Morgan Hill, San Martin, and Gilroy through Monday, July 6. Beginning late Saturday, the Park Fire broke out East of Morgan Hill and air quality impacts are possible near the fire. Read more.

Richmond Area Community Health Protection Program

Learn about the Air District’s efforts under Assembly Bill AB 617 to improve air quality in the Richmond-North Richmond-San Pablo community. 

The Air District is expanding existing efforts to reduce air pollution in communities through the state of California’s Community Air Protection Program, also known as Assembly Bill 617.

One key component of this program is to initiate community air monitoring plans in neighborhoods most disproportionately impacted by air pollution. Data collected from these monitoring plans will inform future community-based emissions reduction plans. 

The California Air Resources Board selected The Richmond Area as a priority community for monitoring plan development, based on a recommendation from the Air District. This plan will serve as a model for future efforts as the program grows over time.

Subscribe to the Richmond Area Community Health Protection Program email list and check back soon for more information.
