When should an air quality complaint be made?

If your comfort or health is being impacted, a complaint should be reported as quickly as possible after the air quality problem has been observed. The District may be able to respond in time to halt or minimize an on-going problem odor or dust situation. If your report can only be made after the problem has halted, but there is a possibility or even likelihood that it may re-occur, you can contact the District to investigate after the fact. Through our outreach we may be able to stop the reoccurrence of the problem. 

Also, if the problem does re-occur, contact the District as soon as possible so that we may respond and our staff are able to verify the problem. Our ability to verify, identify the source of, and potentially resolve a complaint is significantly aided by being able to observe the problem while it is taking place.
