Indoor Air Quality Evaluation
School District
Southern California

Iris Environmental has been providing support to a major southern California School District to evaluate indoor air quality impacts surrounding the use of portable classrooms. The project has included designing a statistically based air-monitoring program to determine the levels of chemicals and molds that may be attributable to the portable classrooms. Working closely with members of a Technical Working Group, we developed indoor air health standards to identify and prioritize those portable classrooms that pose the greatest risk to the health of students and teachers. All targeted portable classrooms are currently the subject of additional evaluation
