AIR MONITORING ASSSESSMENT

 


Welcome to SMOCS.org (the Southern Maryland Oyster Cultivation Society). This website was initially created in 2008 to support an oyster restoration program in Southern Maryland to improve local water quality. It ended successfully in 2013 after having enrolled dozens of waterfront property owners to raise oysters at their docks and then planted 12 million spat (young oysters) on nearby reefs. But our advocacy for the environment did not end with the termination of SMOCS. It shifted to studying the effectiveness of federal and state regulations for monitoring toxic air pollution in communities immediately next to the Dominion Cove Point Liquefaction Facility in Calvert County Maryland. This site will house the results of that four year study until we can create a new website designed to make information available to individuals and organizations fighting to reduce or stop dangerous pollution in their neighborhoods.
