Historical air monitoring information

An air quality assessment for all required parameters was carried out at Marino in 2000/2001. During the assessment monitoring was done by a mobile unit containing continuous monitors for sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and benzene. Continuous samples were also taken for particulates (PM10) and lead.

Results were collected from 05/12/2000 to 09/04/2001 and compared with the Assessment Thresholds in the Air Quality Regulations to determine the long term monitoring necessary. The findings of the assessment can be viewed here Assessment Results.
