The Municipality’s monitoring network consists of two fully automated ambient air quality monitoring stations and seven dust fallout monitoring sites. These sites are designed to measure criteria pollutants including sulphur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide(NO2), oxides of nitrogen(NOX), ozone (O3), particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5), dust fall out and meterological parameters (weather conditions). Ambient air quality monitoring must include current weather conditions.
Data collection commenced in July 2014 and to date the National Limits have not been exceeded.
