Air sampling plea
Written by Margo Ashmore
Posted 8/19/2014
If you’ve been intrigued by recent articles in the Northeaster and NorthNews about air quality, here’s something you can do: Volunteers are still needed to host the sampling canisters for August 25-28 in four different areas of Northeast and North Minneapolis.

All you have to do is put the canister outside in a safe place, chain it to something that won’t walk off, open it at 5 p.m. Monday and close it at 5 p.m. Thursday. It’s a simple lever.

Volunteers do also need to pick up and drop off the canister at the testing lab, Pace Analytical, in Southeast Minneapolis. The pickup can be done immediately before the Monday test, or between 11:30 and 1 p.m. that day.

If you’re in one of these areas and want to volunteer, call Jenni Lansing of the City of Minneapolis at 612-673-3023. The areas are:

- North Minneapolis between 44th and 34th Avenues N., from Emerson west to the city limits.

- North Minneapolis between Golden Valley Road and Plymouth, from Fremont west to the city limits.

- Northeast Minneapolis in the uppermost Northeast corner

- Northeast/Southeast south and east of Broadway and University (roughly).

Study organizers would like to have the same volunteers host canisters in August, November, February, May, and August of 2015, but you do not have to commit to all.
