The factory was dumping 30,000 pounds of acetaldehyde, a possible carcinogen, into the surrounding area, according to Brian Beveridge, co-director of the West Oakland Environmental Indicator's Project.
"[Emissions from the plant] were hard on people," said Beveridge. "It's an irritant for people who had a respiratory problem, and so many in West Oakland had asthma."
He said neighbors had complained to the regional air quality officials, but the complaint process back then made it difficult to document the pollution. Beveridge said inspectors would be sent out after five complaints, but they weren't always on the clock when the releases happened, sometimes during the night.
The factory had been around for decades, so its air permits were "grandfathered," Beveridge said, allowing it to perform less stringent air quality standards.

What's the West Oakland Environmental Indicator's Project's next research question: "What's in the air we breathe," said Beveridge, who said the group is working with technology company Intel to test mobile devices that will allow residents to monitor air quality in real-time.
Beveridge says the goal is to compare the data they collect with that collected by the regional air quality agency, which takes air samples in towers located two-miles apart and hundreds of feet in the air.
"From that they tell us what the air in like in the air basin, so it's always been an interest to know what do we really breathe," said Beveridge.

Brian Beveridge, also co-director for the West Oakland Environmental Indicators Project, hopes the ability to easily measure air quality drives developers toward social consciousness. "Imagine if you could look at a Google map on your phone and decide whether to rent an apartment or not, buy a condo, go to this or that day care," he said. "This kind of information can help guide the permitting of facilities - can help guide where we put things in Oakland. ... If the public begins to say, 'We don't want to live where the air's bad, and I can see right here the air's bad,' the market will drive it."
Gordon and Beveridge's group has already deployed Intel's prototype in West Oakland.

Beveridge said he hopes to eventually compile data over the course a year to see whether there are seasonal or block-by-block variations.
