Air Quality Monitoring

Program Overview

Current air quality data for Pend Oreille County locations are based on modeling from a stations located in the Spokane, WA area. To provide a more 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 throughout our landscape. To learn more or even host a unit, review this program page and reach out to our natural resource staff.
