Hamilton Air Monitoring
 
Air monitors collect outdoor air quality data and these data are compared to levels of air pollutants that constitute to provincial and federal air standards. Another use of this data is to identify sources of air pollutants, and evaluate the potential impacts of air emissions on human health.
 
Hamilton Air Monitoring Network
 
 
The Hamilton Air Monitoring Network (HAMN) is an industry funded, local air monitoring network comprising 22 local companies who have committed to assessing air quality in Hamilton on a regular basis and tracking changes in air quality. On-going operating costs and expenses related to the upgrading of air monitoring equipment and instruments are borne by industries within the network. The network provides air quality reports to the MOE on a regular basis and all reports are audited by the MOE to ensure a consistent and high quality level of data. The Ministry also conduct regular audits of the equipment at the HAMN sampling sites.
 
HAMN is a key element in helping to determine where progress is being made and identifying air quality issues that require additional focus and attention.

Hamilton Air Quality Index - Ministry of the Environment
 
 
The MOE continues to operate the three Air Quality Index (AQI) sites in Hamilton- Downtown, Mountain and Hamilton West. The AQI network also includes equipment from Environment Canada as part of its National Air Pollution Surveillance Station (NAPS) network at two of the AQI stations.
