An air quality assessment in Bray was carried out between October 2005 and May 2006. This site was located in the Health Services Executive yard on Killarney Road. Monitoring was done by a mobile unit containing continuous monitors for sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, PM10 and benzene.  Metals in air were measured by pumping air through filters which were changed at regular intervals. Results for this assessment can be veiwed through the link below.


We are currently having some technical issues with the particulate matter instrument in Bray.
