As part of The Toxic Turnaround Initiative - a program designed to address (and reverse) the dangerous toxic trend in our community - ACE announced a citizens air monitoring initiative known as The Bucket Brigade. (Photo & description)
As William Smedley, executive director of GreenWatch, explained, the buckets are community friendly tools that can be used to take "grab samples," or a snapshot of pollution levels at any time, day or night, weekday or weekend. This will enable anyone to obtain measurements of everyday pollution levels or respond to accidental releases from Occidental Chemical and the Pottstown Landfill.
