Restaurant Survey

Restaurant Survey

Help the Air District by sharing information about cooking equipment used at your restaurant.

The Air District is gathering information about the cooking equipment used in Bay Area restaurants. This information will support efforts to reduce human exposure to fine particulate matter emissions in impacted communities in conjunction with our implementation of Assembly Bill 617 (AB 617).

Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey at the link below. The information you provide will be a valuable contribution to the Air District's efforts to estimate restaurant emissions in impacted communities. It will also help to determine what types of equipment may be available to control particulate matter emissions from commercial cooking equipment as well as the costs associated with operating the equipment.

The submission deadline for the survey is January 24, 2020.

If you have any questions, contact Krishnan Balakrishnan, Senior Air Quality Engineer (see contact information below).
