Santa Monica – No Surprise – Study Shows Airport Not A Threat to Neighbors

STUDY SHOWS LEAD LEVELS NEAR SANTA MONICA NOT A THREAT Santa Monica Municipal Airport does not pose a threat to the health and well being of its neighbors. That’s what a seventh air quality study recently showed. “Anti-airport advocates have tried to use these seven studies to restrict operations or possibly close the airport,” said Greg Pecoraro, AOPA vice president of regional affairs. “We hope this latest study will convince area residents and officials that the airport is not a health concern as some have tried to make it.” Preliminary results from air samples taken at the airport between April 2006 and July 2006, and October 2006 and February 2007, indicate that the levels of lead in the communities around Santa Monica Municipal are below federal and state standards.
