Air quality monitoring in Beaumont

Beaumont is now part of the Alberta Capital Airshed!

Beaumont became a member of the Alberta Capital Airshed (ACA) in December 2021. The ACA focuses on collecting and sharing information about outdoor air quality in the Alberta Capital Region.  

A livable, vibrant, healthy community for all includes clean air. Our ACA membership gives us the capacity to monitor air quality in Beaumont and will help us with data-driven planning and policy decisions going forward. The ACA now has two air quality monitors in Beaumont, with the potential to add more as required: 

  • Four Seasons Park
  • Exterior of Beaumont City Hall

Ongoing monitoring and measurement of air quality parameters related to health are best practice for a municipality of our size and critical for proactive and responsible environmental management.

Air quality data for Beaumont is now available on the ACA’s website. Air quality data includes real-time data on fine particulate matter, and passive air quality data for nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide; these are key components in the assessment of air quality in relation to health.  A link to the “Purple Air Map” is available at this website and provides the current Air Quality Health Index (AQHI) Value for Beaumont at the location of the City Hall monitor
