The study was performed with the full cooperation of the airport's administration and staff.
City Councilwoman Leslie Daigle, who chairs the committee, said the study was commissioned in response to concerns expressed by Newport Beach residents about emissions from aircraft taking off from JWA and the possible effects.
The study's main objective was to determine whether airport-associated particulate matter could be distinguished from other sources, especially automobile traffic.
"The report provides a wealth of information about the possible sources of air particles and should help to answer many of the questions I currently hear from residents," Daigle said, according to a prepared statement. "I believe it demonstrates the city's continued focus on addressing the quality-of-life impacts associated with having a commercial airport on the city's border.
"It's also important to commend the JWA leadership and staff, because they have already implemented many of the suggested mitigation measures contained in the report."
She added that the air quality study's results "can only increase the city's interest in studying both air and water quality further, especially as it may relate to impacts on protected habitats in the Upper Newport Bay."
The Aviation Committee is scheduled to meet at 8 a.m. Monday in the Friends Room of the Newport Beach Central Library, 1000 Avocado Ave.
