Reports and Updates

newJan. 12, 2018 - Based on National Weather Service reports for the Bridgeton area, temperatures are forecasted to fall below 10 degrees Fahrenheit over periods of Monday, Jan. 15, and Tuesday, Jan. 16. When the temperature is below 10 degrees Fahrenheit, AreaRae monitors must be shutdown to avoid damage to the units. Once the temperature rises above 10 degrees Fahrenheit, the AreaRae monitors will be restarted and resume operation. Staff will monitor the temperature to ensure the AreaRae network is shutdown for the least amount of time practicable. Air monitoring using handheld devices will be conducted as normal. The department confirmed with Bridgeton Landfill that the facility will maintain routine operations, and no construction activity is planned over the next several days.
