It’s no secret that Louisville has issues with air pollution. But it’s difficult to determine which pollutants are present, how present they are and whether some areas of town are disproportionately affected by pollution.

Over the next few months, WFPL is partnering with community members to conduct small-scale environmental testing. Interested participants just have to be willing to host a small monitor in their homes for three days, and be interviewed for any stories that result from the testing. It’ll be easy, fun and informative.

We’re looking for volunteers from all over Jefferson County and Southern Indiana. If you want to take part, email me: epeterson@wfpl.org.
