Air Quality Monitoring: Caroline and Sundre Area - 1997, Fall

Alberta Environmental Protection (AEP) is currently conducting an air quality monitoring program in the Caroline and Sundre area of West Central Alberta. The objectives of the program are to: (1) "map" the distribution of outdoor air quality parameter concentrations in the vicinity of industrial facilities in the area; (2) detect the influence of elevation and topography on concentrations, and (3) identify some of the specific sulphur and hydrocarbon compounds that may be responsible for complaints. The program officially began in July, 1997 and is expected to be complete by the end of April, 1998. The program was initiated in response to concerns raised by area residents through the Caroline Interrogatory Process.

Air Quality Monitoring: Carstairs/Crossfield Area - 1999 and 2000

Alberta Environment conducted an air quality monitoring survey in the Carstairs and Crossfield areas of Alberta on December 1 and 2, 1999. The objective of the monitoring survey was to determine air pollutant levels near industrial facilities in the area near the Town of Carstairs. The Mobile Air Monitoring Laboratory (MAML) was used to monitor air quality in the area on December 1 and 2, 1999. It monitored air quality for one hour at each of eight sites for a total of eight hours. Pollutants measured by the MAML included sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, total reduced sulphur, hydrocarbons, particulates, oxides of nitrogen, ozone, carbon monoxide and ammonia.

Air Quality Monitoring: Edmonton, Northwest - June 2001 to March 2002

Alberta Environment is currently conducting an air quality monitoring survey near the Inland Cement facility and adjacent to Yellowhead Trail in northwest Edmonton. The survey began in June 2001 and is expected to be complete in September 2002. Alberta Environment will release a final report detailing the results of the survey by the end of 2002. The data and information presented in this report is preliminary. Therefore, conclusions regarding air quality and specifically particulate levels in northwest Edmonton should not be drawn until the completion of the study. The information presented in this report is a summary of available data from monitoring activities conducted from June 2001 to March 2002.

Air Quality Monitoring: Edmonton, Whitemud Drive Area - June 2000 to June 2001

Alberta Environment conducted a mobile, ambient air quality monitoring study at six locations near Whitemud Drive in west Edmonton. The study consisted of four surveys, over four seasons, for one year. The objectives of monitoring this area were: (1) to determine concentrations of air pollutants representative of the monitored locations near Whitemud Drive; (2) to compare air pollutant levels to data from permanent monitoring stations in Edmonton; and (3) to compare air pollutant levels to Alberta's air quality guidelines. Alberta Environment conducts mobile air quality surveys each year as part of its air quality monitoring program. These monitoring surveys are unannounced and use the department’s Mobile Air Monitoring Laboratory (MAML). Pollutants measured by the MAML included carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, ozone, particulates, hydrocarbons, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, total reduced sulphur and ammonia.

Air Quality Monitoring: Edson and Hinton Area - September 1999 to June 2000

Alberta Environment conducted a mobile, ambient air quality monitoring survey in the Edson and Hinton areas of Alberta. The study consisted of four weeklong surveys, over four seasons, for one year. The objectives of monitoring this area were: (1) to determine concentrations of air pollutants representative of the monitored locations in the survey area; (2) to compare air pollutant levels to data from other locations in Alberta; and (3) to compare air pollutant levels to Alberta's air quality guidelines. Alberta Environment conducts mobile air quality surveys each year as part of its air quality monitoring program. These monitoring surveys are unannounced and use the department’s Mobile Air Monitoring Laboratory (MAML). Pollutants measured by the MAML included carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen, ozone, particulates, hydrocarbons, sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, total reduced sulphur and ammonia. During this survey, the mobile lab monitored air quality for twenty days at eighteen sites in Edson and Hinton and downwind of industrial facilities in the Edson area. Each location was monitored for a minimum of one hour to allow comparison to the air quality guidelines. The survey obtained about 152 hours of air quality monitoring information. Sites were selected to provide data near populated areas and near industrial sites. This report represents the results of the fall (September 13 to 16, 1999), winter (February 7 to 9, 17 and 18, 2000), spring (April 18, 19, 25 to 27, 2000) and summer (June 4, 5, 13 to 16, 2000) surveys.

Air Quality Monitoring: Grande Prairie County - 1998, December

Alberta Environmental Protection (AEP) is currently conducting an intensive air quality monitoring survey in the County of Grande Prairie. The objectives of the air monitoring survey are to: (1) determine maximum air pollutant levels in the region; (2) map the distribution of air quality within the County; and (3) compare air pollutant levels in the County with air quality guidelines and with air pollutant levels at other locations in Alberta. The monitoring survey was initiated on December 1, 1998 and is expected to be complete by the end of the calendar year 1999. This monitoring survey is part of an unannounced, routine air quality monitoring program that is conducted throughout the province by AEP. The AEP Mobile Air Monitoring Laboratory (MAML) was used to monitor air quality on 12 days in the first half of December at 23 locations in the County of Grande Prairie. Monitoring was conducted in a broad rural area west, northwest and northeast of the City of Grande Prairie between Townships 70 and 76 to the Alberta/British Columbia border. The focus of this monitoring was to collect air quality data downwind of industrial facilities and at communities in the area. Air quality parameters monitored by the MAML during this survey included sulphur dioxide, hydrogen sulphide, total reduced sulphur, hydrocarbons, particulates, oxides of nitrogen, ozone, carbon monoxide and ammonia. Additional air quality monitoring was conducted using other monitoring techniques at locations where elevated air pollutant levels were measured. The following report is a summary of air quality monitoring conducted in December 1998. AEP will conduct additional monitoring using the MAML and other monitoring techniques in the spring, summer and fall of 1999.
