Through the University of Texas (UT), we sponsored the installation of an ambient-air monitoring station on Gregory-Portland Independent School District (G-PISD) property in Portland, Texas.

The G-PISD is located near several industrial facilities, and as a responsible neighbor, we designed and installed this air monitoring station — Portland’s first — to enhance the existing local air quality network and to help address community needs.

The air monitoring station began operating in 2019. It gathers air quality data and shares information about the results publicly, measuring levels of volatile organic compounds, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and fine particulate matter. Our partners at UT manage the project and engage local stakeholders through public presentations on the operations of the air monitoring site, data findings and analysis.

By working with G-PISD, we put local communities at the center of our commitment to the environment and act as a responsible neighbor.

We appreciate Cheniere’s partnership with our school district, and their diligence in addressing the community’s desire to monitor air quality in our area. This station will serve not only to provide public information and potential educational opportunities for our students, but it will also act as a catalyst for industrial transparency in our region.”
