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.

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

Watch this page for updates, including local events next spring:

  • CRAZ hosted community open house
  • Air quality presentations throughout the community

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.
