The South Coast Air Quality Management Distric (SCAQMD) conducted an Air Quality Study with three schools in the Long Beach District. John Ellis served as the Pilot Study Project Manager and HVAC Contracting Supervisor on the study.
The Google Earth Map on this page shows the study area. The yellow circles indicate the locations of the three participating elementary schools: A)Del Amo, B)Hudson, and C)Dominguez. The black rectangle marks the location of the Union Pacific Railroad Facility. Also nearby are the Port of Los Angeles, Port of Long Beach, San Pedro Harbor, Long Beach Airport, and several oil refineries. In other words: three schools are tucked into a major industrial area known for bad air quality.
