Fort Air Partnership relocates monitoring station

Fort Air Partnership announced that it has moved its Keith Purves Portable Air Monitoring Station.

The move was made earlier this month, with the new location being in the community of Thorhild, just north of Alberta’s Industrial Heartland.

“The portable station will collect and report data on the substances used to calculate the Air Quality Health Index,” Wrote the Fort Air Partnership in a release. “The station will also provide weather information.”

The new station began reporting data in early April, with the station expected to operate in Thorhild for a year. Before the move, the station was located in Newbrook. The new station is located at the Thorhild water transfer station just west of 7 Street and 7 Avenue.

A summary of the data findings in Newbrook will be released in the summer.

The Fort Air Partnership has 10 air monitoring stations in the surrounding area, with these stations operating 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

A live data feed of these stations is available on the Fort Air Partnership website.
