What's Ahead for South Coast AQMD in 2021

As 2020 comes to a close, there is much to look forward to in the year ahead. Here is a sneak peak of what to expect in 2021:

  • Enhanced AQI Map Data: South Coast AQMD’s Air Quality Index map will be enhanced to include more localized air quality data with a new gridded map. Those using the South Coast AQMD app will be able to access more geographically specific air quality information in real time based on their location

  • Virtual Special Public Events: The 8th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service will take place in a virtual setting this January, followed by the 7th Annual Cesar Chavez Day of Remembrance in late-March.

  • 2022 Air Quality Management Plan (AQMP): South Coast AQMD will continue the development of the 2022 AQMP that will address the new federal ozone standard of 70 parts per billion. It will include a comprehensive analysis of air quality, emissions, and the impact of existing and new proposed control measures.

  • School Air Filtration: South Coast AQMD will administer $14 million install and maintain air filtration systems in schools. Schools will be considered within proximity to where air quality violations have occurred, as well as those in disadvantaged and environmental justice communities.

  • Low Cost Sensor Library Program: Communities will have the opportunity to borrow and receive guidance on low cost air sensors for specific projects to look at air quality concerns and provide awareness and education.
