Real-time air quality monitoring coming soon
From 6 September to 9 September 2021, the EPA installed 3 community based dust monitors and anemometers (which monitor the wind and speed direction) in the backyards of volunteers. The sites were chosen by residents from the community working group and the EPA. The monitors will determine whether the general dust in the area is of small enough particles to be a health concern, and SA Health is partnering with the community for this study to interpret the data.
The sites are in: Perry Barr Road, Spinks Road and Clubhouse Road.
Live air quality data will soon be available online from this website, where EPA staff will be monitoring the data and measuring it against local and regional dust events.
You can register for an online training session on how to interpret the data.
If you are not able to attend the online training session, but you are still interested in learning how to access the data on your home computer, we can visit you and show you in person. Please call us on 08 8204 2004 or send us an email.
