Nearly 17,000 schools in the United States are located fewer than 1,000 feet from heavily used roads, exposing children to traffic-related air pollutants that are linked to a variety of short- and long-term health effects. Sonoma Technology and our study partner, Arup, worked with the U.S. EPA to develop the Best Practices for Reducing Near-Road Air Pollution 曝光 at Schools guidebook. EPA published the first version of the guidebook in 2015 and our updated version in 2021. The 2021 guidebook includes new sections such as air quality monitoring with lower-cost sensors. The publication offers schools strategies to reduce student exposure to traffic-related air pollution.


该出版物中确定的战略植根于实际经验,并已在全国各地的学校和社区成功实施. Best practices covered include:


  • Mechanical ventilation and filtration

  • Passive and natural ventilation

  • Actions that building occupants can take

  • School site location and design

  • 运输 management policies

  • Roadside barriers


指引亦提供机械通风及过滤系统评估清单,以协助学校改善教室空气质素.


As part of our work, we conducted literature reviews on near-road health concerns, mitigation strategies, and best practices for reducing exposure. In addition, we assessed analysis tools to support near-road/smart growth planning and developed case study material illustrating near-road planning principles to reduce pollutant exposure. Final products, all available from EPA’s website, include the guidebook, case studies, a summary infographic, and a list of additional resources to help school officials.
