The WBEA operates a network of continuous ambient air monitoring stations in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. The WBEA compares the measurements collected at the stations against the Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objectives (AAAQOs). When a measured parameter exceeds the AAAQOs, the WBEA must notify select WBEA members and provide information about the exceedance, such as station, date, time, concentration, wind speed, wind direction, etc.
The business previously operated by emailing a .csv form following an exceedance, which would arrive the following business day. This wasn’t the most efficient or timely solution
