Fort Air Partnership's (FAP) continuous air monitoring station in downtown Redwater is now up and running.
 
The station is collecting and reporting data on six substances, plus several weather conditions. It will also provide a daily and forecast Air Quality Health Index rating.
 
“Having an air monitoring station in Redwater is important because it enables us to better understand the quality of the air locally and on a regional basis, especially where people live,” said Nadine Blaney, FAP’s executive director.
 
The Redwater post is one of nine continuous monitoring stations in FAP's network.
 
With the new start-up, an air monitoring station adjacent to Agrium’s Redwater fertilizer plant is no longer part of FAP’s network.
 
Data is available to the public on fortair.org.
