2022 Second Quarter Air Quality Monitoring Results Released

Fort Air Partnership

Fort Air Partnership (FAP), the organization that monitors the air local residents breathe, released 2022 second quarter Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) results today. The Government of Alberta calculates the AQHI using data collected at seven of FAP’s air monitoring stations.

Results show that AQHI in the Airshed was of low risk to health at least 98% of the time for April, May, and June. There were zero hours of high or very high AQHI rating for the calendar quarter. Risk to health increases as the index level rises.
