EPA Releases Air Pollution Monitoring Survey Report

Air Pollution Monitoring Survey Report Released

An air pollution survey conducted across Monrovia by the Environmental Research and Standard Lab at the Environmental Protection Agency of Liberia (EPA) has provided evidence of air pollution hotspots across the city.

The survey findings were released at the celebration of World Environment Day on 5 June 2019.

The air pollution monitoring survey unearthed that smoke from charcoal is exposing residents to dangerous level of air pollution which will affect their health.

 “Slow traffic and trash heaps are sources of dangerous pollution in Monrovia, while generator rooms and the exhaust from generators cause dangerous levels of pollution,” the study identified.
