Air Quality Measurements
Aclima Data Study
San Leandro 2050 is working with Aclima, an air quality measurement system, to bring visibility to air quality at the neighborhood level in San Leandro. Aclima sends cars out to drive every City Street at various times during the year to take measurements of different pollutants* that are harmful to people and the Planet. They have been driving in San Leandro since 2019, and now have three years of data to help us understand more about where our worst air quality is and making it possible to work on solutions to improve it. These measurements will provide unique insights about what people are breathing at the block level, and point the way toward which sources of pollution must be reduced.
