Due to efforts from concerned Cully residents of the Cully Air Action Team, Living Cully, and findings from most recent USFS study of metal contaminants in moss samplings throughout the greater Portland area, the Oregon DEQ and OHA have decided to take action:

Agencies take action in Cully 

DEQ and OHA initiated a dialogue with Cully neighborhood representatives about the new moss data, and to seek their input on how best to communicate upcoming and ongoing activities with the larger community. 

DEQ will conduct air monitoring in and around Cully. DEQ will first gather data on wind direction patterns and find suitable locations that are secure, have access to electricity for operating the monitoring instruments, and can be safely accessed by DEQ staff members. DEQ is reviewing information about potential sources of airborne metals, as there may be several sources of pollutants in the area.

DEQ and OHA will investigate each moss hotspot and have a plan to prioritize additional locations for follow-up. For more information go to: http://saferair.oregon. gov/Documents/faq-future-ai...   

Follow-up actions in other neighborhoods could include additional moss sampling, air monitoring or facilities inspections depending on priority level. The agencies cannot investigate all sites immediately, and the first priority in June is the Cully neighborhood.
