Air Education Program @ SMS

In  fall,  2008,  the  Pendleton  Air  Quality  Commission  (AQC)  began  an  Air Education Program at Sunridge Middle School with three seventh grade science classrooms.  Students learned about a variety of air quality issues such as health issues, air quality monitoring, criteria pollutants, and air pollution sources.  The students kept track of the daily air quality forecast for one month and were asked to write an essay on air quality at the end of the program.

Air Quality Commission

Household Hazardous Waste

Once we really start looking around our houses, the amount of hazardous materials we have on site is a real eye-opener.  Oil-based paints and stains, paint thinner, gasoline, charcoal starter fluid, cleaners, waxes, pesticides, fingernail polish remover, and wood preservatives are just a few that most of us have around the house.

Despite the fact that we immerse ourselves in it, the water from pools and spas is far from chemically clean.  Nutrients, pH, and chlorine can adversely affect fish and wildlife in waterbodies.  Following these Best Management Practices will ensure the cleanliness of your pool and the environment.
