The installation was completed and tuning and testing began of 2 automatic stations for simultaneous measurement of the concentrations of particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5) and meteorological parameters for the purposes of monitoring the ambient air quality and real-time dissemination of data on the territory of the city of Montana.
One of the stations is installed in the yard of the Profiled High School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Foreign Languages, while the other one is located next to the First Primary School.
Their installation increases the number of sites for monitoring of PM concentrations on the territory of the city, which will ensure the availability of verified information about ambient air quality and the impact of the various sources, including the share of the household sector (household heating), over ambient air quality. The data from the measurements will ensure the availability of even more reliable information for analysis and assessment of the intensity and impact of the sources of harmful emissions, including household heating, over the air quality and for assessment of the adequacy of the measures, implemented by the municipality with the aim of reducing pollution and undertaking adequate and effective corrective actions.
The stations may become part of the National Environmental Monitoring System – Ambient Air.
The stations were purchased within the framework of the Integrated Project “Bulgarian Municipalities Working Together to Improve Air Quality” under the Program LIFE of the European Union.
