Breathe In New Mexico is partnering with Diné CARE to work on collecting data on air quality in the 4 corners region of New Mexico. Residents are using an air monitor that measures particulate matter in order to see the air quality impacts from nearby coal mines and coal-fired power plants. Being located near coal mines and power plants families in the four corners area have long felt the impacts of polluting industry. Through air monitoring, they hope to have the data necessary to identify what is contained within the particulate matter in the air they breathe.
