Recent Air Quality

The EPA’s recent air quality data is a RSS feed that includes hourly average pollutant concentrations for ozone (ppm), carbon monoxide (ppm), nitrogen dioxide (ppm), sulfur dioxide (ppm), particles (PM10) (μg/m3), fine particles (PM2.5) (μg/m3) and station index (station air quality index or AQI) for 9 EPA monitoring sites.

The station index is a descriptive scale that indicates the quality of air based on a comparison between pollutant concentrations and the relevant national standards. The station index determines the station air quality which is described as either ‘very good’, ‘good’, ‘fair’, ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’. If the air quality is classified as poor, then one or more pollutants in the air have exceeded the national standard.

There is currently a delay in updating the air quality index due to intermittent wifi drop outs at our monitoring stations. Our team is investigating the issue and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.
