Air Monitoring Network
The Environment Department’s Air Quality Bureau operates a network of ambient air monitors that continually sample the air across New Mexico, except for Bernalillo County and tribal lands. Click here to go to the NMED Air Monitoring web site, where you can view photos of the sites, learn more about what pollutants we monitor and their potential health effects. You can select data for any of the sites, and customize a report or graph to meet your needs. There are also maps and links to other sources of air monitoring data and information.
NMED has released the draft of the 2019 Annual Network Review. Visit /draft-2019-annual-network-review-posted-6-4-19/ for public view. Under 40 CFR, Part 58, Subpart B, states are required to submit an annual monitoring network review to the respective EPA regional office. The annual monitoring network review is available for public inspection for 30 days prior to submission to EPA. The plan will be posted June 4, 2019 through July 4, 2019. Additionally, ANR Public Information Plan can be viewed at the following link: PIP Approved & Signed Final 7-1-19
