Currently, the ambient air quality monitoring network in Edmonton is operated jointly by the provincial government and various industry groups. There are three ambient air quality monitoring stations that are configured to measure air contaminants and calculate the provincial air quality health index (AQHI). These three stations are directly managed by Alberta Environment. Alberta Environment also operates a fourth station that measures only particulate matter (Edmonton McIntyre).
In addition to the Province’s stations, there are six industry-operated stations that are situated around industrial areas in the east and west areas of the City. These six stations monitor air quality contaminant concentrations that are specific to the provincial approvals that relate to each of the industrial operators.
