Metro Vancouver Air Quality Monitoring

Aug 16, 2016

At the August 15, 2016 Regular Meeting, Delta Council recieved a preliminary summary of Metro Vancouver's air quality monitoring project conducted near railway lines between June 2014 and May 2015.

The results show that Delta met the short-term ambient air quality health objectives in all sampling sites, and the values of short-term elevated levels in particulate matter were similar to other areas in the regional airshed.
