New Fine Particulate Matter Plan in Place

Live data feed buttonAlberta Environment’s Fine Particulate Matter Response Plan will reduce particulate matter (solid and liquid particles one-eighth the diameter of a human hair) in the region through regulation, education and awareness. Fort Air Partnership has a support role regarding the plan. Our job will be to monitor and report on PM levels against new Canadian standards. Read more…

About Us in 190 words

We monitor the air you breathe by collecting air quality data throughout a 4,500 square kilometre airshed. We are next door to Edmonton and with Alberta’s Industrial Heartland within our borders, we encompass some of the most condensed industrial development in the province. Air quality in our region is considered good, as measured by the Air Quality Health Index.

FAP’s collection and reporting on substances that affect air quality is rigorously controlled, monitored and guided by objectives set by government. Our work is transparent, guided by an expert scientific advisory group, and driven by national and provincial standards. Continuous one-minute data is collected 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by FAP and is available to anyone. We invite you to find out more about what substances we monitor and how we monitor.

FAP’s 63 monitoring sites measure 25 different substances and meteorological conditions. FAP monitors for both hydrocarbons and volatile organic compounds as mandated by Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development.  We immediately alert the Government of Alberta whenever an air quality standard is exceeded. They then determine what the environmental and health impacts may be.
