Air Quality Monitoring
Current air quality data for Pend Oreille County locations are based on modeling from a station located in Colbert, WA. To provide a local air quality monitoring option, the Pend Oreille Conservation District has purchased and installed a purple air quality monitoring unit in downtown Newport, WA. Readings from this unit are produced live and available to the public on the purple air map - linked HERE.
In addition to providing the Newport, WA area with a local reading, we hope to expand on this network of air quality monitoring units county-wide by partnering with private, non-profit, tribal and government entities to install more monitoring units, in more places on the landscape.
