Since 2001 DELG has operated a mobile air quality monitoring unit to supplement monitoring carried out at established (non-mobile) monitoring sites. The facility can be moved to various areas of the province, fulfilling temporary monitoring needs. The current air quality monitoring trailer was acquired from the National Air Pollution Surveillance (NAPS) program in 2007.
Personnel within the Environmental Evaluation and Reporting Branch are responsible for deploying, operating, and maintaining the mobile air quality monitoring unit. Personnel from the Department’s Regional Offices may also provide support.
