The San Jose neighborhood is located in Albuquerque’s South Valley. This community has existed in Albuquerque for decades and runs along the railway that runs through the city.  As a result of loose zoning laws, residents here have to deal with a large industry presence in their community, including refineries, asphalt refineries, cement plants, automobile recycling plants, and a variety of chemical processing and storage facilities. San Jose Community members have worked hard to make known the industry presence and pollution in their neighborhood, and they are now partnering with Breathe In New Mexico to do air monitoring through their bucket brigade.
