Oregon DEQ's Air Quality Monitoring Community Outreach Program aims to partner with communities to provide information about air quality. We will answer your questions about monitoring technologies, the DEQ monitoring network and low-cost air quality sensors.
Is your community interested in conducting its own air quality monitoring? DEQ may be able to advise on how to set up a system of low-cost air quality sensors. For more information, email Questions.firstname.lastname@example.org.
SensORTM Site Selection Project Oregon has had an increase in wildfire smoke intrusions across the state, increasing the need for real-time air quality PM2.5 health information. In 2021, Oregon legislature funded the addition of 20 new PM2.5 AQI sites to expand wildfire smoke monitoring and SensORs will be used to populate these sites. DEQ is now conducting a site search, reaching out to interested parties for comment.
To find out more about the site selection process, you can review the Sampling and Analysis Plan.
DEQ is designing a K-12 air quality curriculum that can be used to teach about air quality in the state of Oregon. It can be tailored to your community and is meant to encourage students to learn about the air they breathe. For more information contact Hillarie Sales.
