ExxonMobil Pipeline Company Spill, Mayflower, Arkansas
Air monitoring data is being posted on the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality public website.
Continuous air quality monitoring is being conducted by both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and ExxonMobil. The air monitoring data from both EPA and ExxonMobil have been reviewed by the Arkansas Department of Health. The Arkansas Department of Health has concluded that the data results are similar.
As cleanup continues, contaminant levels continue to decrease. Today, the air quality readings are below levels likely to cause health effects for the general population with the exception of the cleanup areas where the emergency responders are directly working. On-going air monitoring will continue throughout the local community and in the evacuated neighborhood. Evacuated residents will be promptly notified when air quality readings meet conditions for re-entry.
