Broward County's Ambient Air Monitoring

The Air Quality Program operates and maintains a comprehensive network of Ambient Air Monitoring Stations

Each monitoring site:

  • Is strategically placed to represent population needs in Broward County. 
  • Has monitoring instruments that are approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), that are either Federal Reference Method and/or Federal Equivalent Method.
  • Is designed to measure specific pollutant concentrations; Several of the monitoring locations also measure meteorological conditions, such as temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction. 
  • Retrieves pollutant data hourly by a central computer via an automated telephone connection.
  • Gathers air quality data that becomes part of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) national air quality data base.
