While setting up a new air monitoring station in north Minneapolis, Kurt Anderson and his crew from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) drew some extra attention from one of the local residents — the furry kind. Check out the video on YouTube.
The MPCA monitors outdoor air quality throughout Minnesota. Monitoring air quality helps us understand if the air is healthy to breathe, how pollution levels have changed over time, and what impact air pollution emissions have on the environment and our health.
