To monitor and reduce any impacts to the community during cleanup efforts, the State-Sponsored Debris Removal Program is monitoring air quality at several areas around Paradise and Oroville. Current air quality and results from heavy metal and asbestos sampling will be posted as they are received (you will need to zoom in on a site location and click on the site to see the data). Consolidated reports are posted on this page (see below) as they are received. Please note that locations are still being evaluated and will be updated throughout the cleanup effort. Monitoring locations may also be temporarily offline due to maintenance or operations. For more information, see the Press Release from Cal-OES.
