The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says an ambient air monitoring site has been located at the New Mt. Hermon Baptist Church in southwest Detroit.
The state says in a release Monday that community members determined the monitoring station should measure sulfur dioxide, fine particulate matter, volatile organic compounds, poly aromatic hydrocarbons, heavy metals, hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, and hydrogen cyanide.
The monitoring study will be conducted for one year. It follows recommendations made by a workgroup that included residents, state and federal environmental officials, and University of Michigan researchers.
About dozen monitoring stations are up in Wayne County, including seven in Detroit.
