The article doesn't mention what I saw in TV news just two days earlier: the city government actually turned down earlier requests, and even those conducting the measurements weren't pleased.

Why not? This is going to be a chronic problem.

The acute exposure was not that high.

Was thinking from the other direction, why did it take so long to have multiple monitoring sites. Realizing also that acute exposure is not yet high, though as the season progresses i believe the prevailing winds shift some, though from the south-east.
