The Paramount Unified School District continues to work on an ongoing basis with the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD), the County Public Health Department and other environmental regulatory and enforcement agencies to provide our district information regarding the concerns and findings relating to Hexavalent Chromium levels in the community. The SCAQMD is the regulatory agency in charge of the air quality in the area, as well as the agency providing information regarding the current investigation. The SCAQMD implemented the placement of testing equipment in school district property, rotating the testing equipment to various school sites and regularly reviewing and releasing results of those tests in their web site, which also includes information about their air monitoring activities in the City of Paramount, their meetings and processes: http://www.aqmd.gov/home/regulations/compliance/air-monitoring-activities
Additionally, the Paramount Environmental Portal is provided by the City of Paramount, offering facts and information to residents and businesses about our City’s environment. The site focuses on the areas of air, water, and soil: https://paramountenvironment.org/
