Has Shelter in Place Affected Air Quality?

Turning Down the Heat!

Some areas of Sacramento are more than 10° Fahrenheit warmer than their rural surroundings, largely because of how neighborhoods have been planned and built. Buildings, roads, pavements, and machinery all generate additional, artificial heat, making our communities hotter. Trees and parks combined with other strategies can help to cool communities down, but are often lacking in historically under-resourced and under-served communities.

For more than two years, the Sac Metro Air District and the Local Government Commission have been studying this phenomenon (known as the urban heat island effect) in the region in attempts to reduce heat health risk, particularly among those most vulnerable.

Check out the recording of our webinar to learn more about how heat impacts the air we breathe, why some neighborhoods are hotter than others, and what strategies can help cool communities and protect from extreme heat
