Local Air Monitoring Projects

On occasion, the Air District installs and operates temporary air quality monitoring stations and/or equipment in the Bay Area as resources allow. These monitoring stations are usually placed to:

  • Determine downwind effects from one or more pollution sources.
  • Find out whether air quality measurements at the closest permanent monitoring station are accurately representing pollutant levels in an area of interest.
  • Collect more information about specific pollutants.

View information about recent monitoring projects below.

  • Cupertino Monitoring Project (Sept. 1, 2010 – Dec. 31, 2013)
  • Forest Knolls Monitoring Project (Jan. 2013 – present)

Monitoring at Refineries

In order to implement monitoring at Bay Area refineries the Air District assembled an Air Quality Monitoring Expert Panel to recommend technologies, methods, and tools to improve monitoring capabilities near these facilities.
