Formally launched in August 2023, the Lehigh Valley Breathes project is led by Lehigh and Northampton Counties and sets out to obtain and communicate localized information about particulate air pollution in the Lehigh Valley with a primary purpose of providing policymakers and citizens with the necessary information to help improve the air we all breathe.
Lehigh and Northampton Counties will begin providing project updates monthly on the last week of the month, available through each county’s LVBreathes webpage, social media, as well as through the project email list.
Updates will include current project status, including number of monitors installed, observations as project data is acquired, opportunities for residents to be involved in the project, and pertinent news and information regarding air quality issues of both local and general interest. The data collection is planned to run for a year following the completed monitor installation.
