This is an urgent advisory! This week one of our members was approached by a student from UC Merced to ask if they would be allowed to place an air quality monitor on their facility grounds (see attached letter). This effort is being led by the SJV Center for Air Assessment and Injustice Reduction at UC Merced. This is not scientifically valid as it would not meet Federal EPA citing requirements and could lead to very misleading results. DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO OCCUR ON YOUR PROPERTY! Nothing good will come from this study other than to try and regulate you even more than you already are and based on scientifically flawed information. You are not required to comply with their request in any way. If you are contacted, please tell them NO, and then let us know.
