Draft Annual Air Quality Monitoring Network Plan

Air quality monitoring network

May 1, 2020 - May 31, 2020, 11:59 p.m.

Ecology's draft annual air quality monitoring network plan is available for review.

This report describes:

  • Washington's air quality monitoring network, including air monitoring stations.
  • Recent and planned changes to the network.
  • How Ecology will operate its air monitoring stations in the next year.

Ecology reviews its air quality monitoring network every year to make sure that it collects adequate, representative, and useful air quality data. We use this data to make science-based policy decisions.

Background

Ecology, EPA, tribes, and local clean air agencies maintain a network of air monitoring stations to measure air pollution in the state. Using continuous monitoring data, we can let you know when air pollution reaches unhealthy levels. Based on this information, people can adjust their daily activities to minimize unhealthy effects.
