Community Source Survey (CSS)



The CSS aims to identify and determine the prevalence of different sources of air pollution in a community of interest. Fieldworkers are sent on unique routes through the community every day to look for any active or potential sources of air pollution as well as any signs of a recent, but historical air polluting event (such as a veld fire). All observations are captured in-situ on a digital data collection platform and accompanied by GPS coordinates pin-pointing the location of the observation. Photos are also taken of each of the sources encountered.  In most cases, this survey is used to help entities determine the potential for air quality offsets in specific community.
