A mobile air monitoring lab is arriving in the Peace Region this week.

The lab – comprised of instrumentation installed inside a large cargo van, will provide air quality monitoring in communities without fixed monitoring stations.

According to the B.C. Energy Ministry, the lab (MAML) measures air pollutants including black carbon, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone and particulate matter, along with standard climate readings.

As reported in early April, the fully-equipped laboratory will be stationed outside of the community hall in Tomslake for around three weeks, before moving on to other communities including Groundbirch, Farmington, and Rolla.

The Energy Ministry says the data collected by the MAML will be available instantly on the ministry’s website, at www.bcairquality.ca/readings.
