Previously, Alliance Houston and the Fifth Ward Community held an event to sample the air at the StoryTime Bike Line! on Saturday, June 19, 2021. In this event Air Alliance Houston provided 15 Flow 2 air monitors which can detect Volatile Organic Compounds, a variety of gaseous chemicals where some of which may have short and long-term adverse health effects.
The StoryTime Bike Line! has a goal to increase awareness about air pollution issues and generate more localized data around air quality in Houston.
The event was attended by 86 participants. They heard directly from Fifth Ward residents at various stops throughout the 2 miles and 8-mile bike tours and they discussed the cancer cluster impacts near and on top of the creosote plume in their neighborhood.
Every community will receive a full "case study" later this fall. Air Alliance Houston will invite attendees and the public to hear about ongoing initiatives to get better the air in these majority-minority communities that face a higher amount of air quality issues.
"I'm looking forward to learning the results of Houston's air quality after these three neighborhood rides. McMac Cx," said Marissa Rose in the comment section of Alliance Houston's post about this event.
