Particulate Matter 10 microns or less (PM 10) Monitoring

The department collects continuous data on Particulate Matter 10 microns or less (PM 10) from a special TEOM monitor at the spill site in Kingston. Particulate pollution at the PM 10 level serves as an air quality indicator for health concerns as particles at 10 microns or less can settle in the bronchi and lungs and cause health problems. The PM 10 data collected by the department is immediately uploaded to the EPA’s servers where it is available for viewing on the EPA’s AIRNow Web site.
