New U.S. EPA Resource Helps Schools Reduce Exposure to Traffic-Related Air Pollution
Nearly 17,000 schools in rural and urban areas across the U.S. are located near heavily traveled roads, exposing kids to traffic-related air pollutants. To help schools reduce kids’ exposures to traffic-related air pollution, EPA has compiled best practice solutions that schools across the country have employed. Best Practices for Reducing Near-Road Pollution Exposure at Schools summarizes several strategies that can be used by schools including ventilation, filtration, voluntary building occupant actions, school transportation policies, school siting and site layout decisions, and the use of sound walls and vegetative barriers. Read EPA's blog to learn more, and share this resource with others who may be interested: www.epa.gov/schools/best-practices-reducing-near-road-air-pollution-exposure-schools.
