Document Description
The San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District is conducting a study to determine if Oceano Dunes SVRA is contributing to air quality problems on the Nipomo Mesa. The District has received permission to install two air quality monitoring station within the SVRA or lands leased as part of the SVRA. These stations require a clear patch of sand 15 feet by 15 feet and will be placed in existing cleared areas. In addition to the monitoring stations, the APCD will install 16 sand traps and monitoring equipment. The sand traps will be placed throughout the riding area of the SVRA. Traps are a maximum of 4 inches in diameter and will be installed on posts two feet into the ground, and will stick out of the ground two feet. The sand traps will be in place for approximately two weeks during the windy season (March-June). Monitoring stations and sand traps will be placed away from areas that support nesting for western snowy plover and California least tern.
