It’s the only one of its kind in the country.&nbsp; If you sit down – and look up – you see solar panels and a spinning wind sensor.&nbsp; And you can use your smart phone to scan a QR barcode to get <a href="http://villagegreen.epa.gov/">up to the minute air quality stats</a>.</p> Mon, 24 Jun 2013 10:52:40 +0000 Leoneda Inge 17742 at http://wunc.org Have A Seat: EPA Builds Air Monitor Bench
