Smoke Readers

Concerned for your community? Do something!

The Smoke Readers are volunteers who are trained and certified to recognize and understand visible emissions from smokestacks, what violations look like, and how to file reports. Smoke reading is an excellent way for citizens to take action in their own communities by reading the facilities that are of concern to them. Readings by our volunteers increase regulatory scrutiny on polluters, as government inspectors can’t be at every facility at all times.

The next training, provided free of charge by GASP, is scheduled for October 9-11, 2018 and is conducted by Eastern Technical Associates. Please contact for more information.

Smoke Readers, be sure to use before you head out to a new spot, to check where the sun will be to ensure you are making valid readings.
