NYPD and Brookhaven Lab Conduct Airflow Study in Subway

The first day of the Subway-Surface Air Flow Exchange program began this morning on NYC streets and parts of the subway. Members of the public may notice the installation of air sampling and related equipment by researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory accompanied by NYPD.

The sampling is scheduled to conclude by 3:00 p.m. The remaining two days of research, subject to weather conditions, will be announced by the NYPD and Brookhaven National Laboratory, 24 hours in advance, to the media and on social media channels. The public also can visit www.bnl.gov/s-safe for more detailed information.

Air sampling will be conducted in parts of the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and in Manhattan. In addition, researchers will disperse low concentrations of harmless gases known as perfluorocarbons at several subway and street-level locations in Manhattan for 30 minutes only during the morning of each study day...
