Air Quality Monitoring in High River

Through a one-year partnership, Air Quality Monitoring will be carried out in High River from December 1, 2022, to November 30, 2023, and will bring a variety of benefits to High River.

Air Monitoring

The Calgary Region Airshed Zone (CRAZ) and the Town of High River announced a partnership in concert with Alberta Environment and Protected Areas to bring air quality monitoring to the High River.

For one year, funding is provided to deploy a portable monitoring station (PAML) in High River:

  • The station will gather high-quality data to produce a snapshot of air quality and an air quality health index (AQHI) for this area.
  • CRAZ's objectives are to monitor air quality in areas that have little or no previous monitoring, supporting a long-term strategy for ambient air quality monitoring.
  • Read the CRAZ FAQ here (PDF) or find more information in the accordions below.

Where to Find Monitoring Data?

Monitoring and real-time data can be found on the website

High River places high value on the local environment and natural capital and is pleased to provide support and cooperation with this initiative:

  • Town Facilities Management staff with Public Works assisted with the set-up required for the PAML.
  • Staff will also assist with the trailer’s maintenance over the coming year.
  • An assessment of several areas was undertaken to provide a suitable location for the trailer. Criteria included no obstructions such as tall trees or buildings that could impact monitoring.
