  • Air Quality and Emissions Monitoring: What does best practice look like?

    When we turn on the tap, we know that the water coming out should be of a consistently high quality. And we can choose – if we prefer – to drink bottled water instead. This is not so with the air that we breathe. Unlike the water that we drink, we have no guarantee, and in many cases no information, telling us that the air quality in our towns, cities and even rural areas is of an ...

  • Air emissions impact measurements at a perchloroethene remediation site

    As part of an U.S. EPA time critical removal action, an air monitoring system was established to measure real-time impacts of perchloroethene (PCE) on the surrounding areas. The soils and groundwater beneath the site (located in West Fargo, North Dakota) were treated using in situ heating of soil and groundwater, with the produced vapors collected using conventional vapor extraction. In order ...
