What am I seeing?
This is a live interactive feed of air monitors in the SharedAirDFW Community Air Monitoring Network. It also shows EPA and Purple Air air monitors in the DFW area. All of these monitors are recording levels of Particulate Matter air pollution. The SharedAirDFW network is a collaboration of the University of Texas at Dallas, Downwinders at Risk, Paul Quinn College, the City of Plano, and Dallas County Colleges.
Over the next 12-16 months, the SharedAirDFW network is scheduled to deploy over 100 new air monitors throughout. the North Texas area, including the front line communities of Joppa, West Dallas, and Midlothian.
For more information on the Dangers of Particulate Matter, see our library of studies and articles we’ve collected on our Particulate Matters page.
Downwinders at Risk Education Fund is dedicated to taking effective action on behalf of those being harmed by air pollution. Our goal is to build a strong grassroots constituency and create new strategies for clean air in North Texas. We do this by informing, connecting, and mobilizing citizens to become active participants in the decision-making that affects the air we breathe. In doing so, we improve both the quality of our air and the quality of our democracy.
We’re committed to working for environmental justice with communities impacted by the worst pollution; to deliver the best science to those communities; to making decisions about pollution and polluters more democratic; to providing solutions to the problems we spotlight, and to funding staff devoted to grassroots empowerment.
