There is a Air Monitor Station at 1276 River Ridge Dr. Redding Ca. Put out by Cal Recycle. Can we get the info from it so we know how bad the air is around our house? 1247 River Ridge Dr, Redding Ca.

Hi Dennis, Per Cal OES, the air monitoring tripods you see around neighborhoods where debris is being cleaned up are being used by crews to ensure that no contaminants are leaving the sites they are working on. The information is not available to the public however Cal OES is working on placing 8 air monitoring stations at schools near debris clean-up areas that will be linked to a website with real-time data on particulates. If you live near a school, most likely there will be a monitor placed soon. Keep an eye out for them!

Thank you!

The debri from burnt homes and cars is very toxic to breath and it is also very toxic if it gets into the creeks, lakes and rivers. When will wattles be handed out to home owners so they can be placed around ash to prevent run off into creeks once rainy season starts?

If and when wattles are available for public use, we will issue an announcement. The City will be using them to help manage erosion, and contractors are using them now on streets to help protect waterways from contamination.

Those wattles do not have fungi, charcoal or IOS-500 in them and are not as useful. I have not seen wattles in anyplace that has burned so not sure what areas you have seen contractors put down wattles but I assume you are just talking in general terms here and yes contractors put wattles down for erosion control when they do soil work on steeper sites. That is not what I am talking about here. I would like to know when wattles mentioned will be given out or placed around toxic ash to prevent our creeks and rivers from toxin going into them once rain starts
