ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - The Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) is now working with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and St. Clair County officials to install some air quality monitoring systems.

EPA brought some sophisticated air monitors that will test what’s in the smoke.

The information from the monitors will help future contractors to put out the fire that’s been burning since November 25 and will be made public, according to St. Clair County Commission Chairman Stan Batemon.

Batemon says that he anticipates that the process will take about a week as the data from the monitors must first be sent to labs.
