The Air Quality Index for Health  is calculated every hour and tells you if air quality is good, fair, poor or very poor in your region. The above index is for overall air quality in the Large Towns AQIH Region. You can find out if air quality is likely to affect your health and what you can do to protect your health on the Air Quality Index for Health page.

Monitoring commenced at The Mall in the city centre in January 2007 and was ended in February 2008. Levels of nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, particulate matter (PM10), benzene, and metals were assessed.

Air quality in Waterford was also assessed in 2000-2001 at Bolton Street near the city centre. The results of both assessments are available through the link below.
