ROSE and Lents Youth Initiative have partnered with the Oregon Environmental Council and Green Lents to create a community air sampling project. It was designed to build awareness of diesel pollution in our lives.
Interns from the Lents Youth Initiative created a video that showcases people of Lents, their connections to the community, and how poor air quality has an impact on their life.
Our report found “snapshots” of diesel particulate matter that was 10, 20 and nearly 70-times Oregon’s health benchmarks.
