Why is this useful?
This fact sheet will help health care providers understand data from the Portland Air Toxics Solutions (PATS) project and its relevance to patients, clinicians, and the community. The Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) recently conducted a modeling study to estimate air toxics concentrations for Portland into the year 2017. The study model used the most current and detailed emissions information from businesses and industry, cars and trucks, and residential activities. This information came from both measured and estimated emissions. The model also factored in economic conditions, population growth, topography, weather, and
new regulations to reduce pollution.
