STEP participates in indoor air quality study

“Study to investigate indoor air quality in affordable housing near busy roadways” (Tufts Now)

“A first-of-its-kind study led by Tufts University researchers, in collaboration with Somerville officials and citizens, will measure indoor air quality and comfort in multifamily housing developments near busy roadways. The study will develop recommendations for the design and operation of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems to create a protective indoor environment that restricts residents’ exposure to transportation-related air pollution.”
