Odor Pollution Diaries

Community members gather information on pollution odours to drive solutions

The nose knows best: if something doesn’t smell right, it very well might not be! Every day we breathe 10,000 to 20,000 liters (2600 to 5200 gallons) of air - mostly through our noses. Chemicals and pollutants can often be smelled before they reach harmful levels, so the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) needs your noses! They provide a website with how-to videos and data collection tools that teach you how to take action on air pollution in your community. Health symptoms like headaches, nasal congestion, dizziness, and watery eyes are often signs for exposure to toxic chemicals. Even if you don’t have these symptoms, if you smell something that could be dangerous, you have the right to investigate and act. An odor diary is a tool for recording smells. Community members can discuss their findings with local agencies with the goal of implementing new legislation or good-neighbor relationships.
