Air Quality Monitoring
An Ozone monitor has been installed in Kennewick; there will now be two monitors shown on Ecology's Monitoring web page. In Kennewick, the eastern "dot" shows PM10 and PM2.5; the western Ozone.
These pollutants are independenly monitored and reported through the Air Quality Index; so the monitors may show different colors.
They can be seen together at AIr Now.; along with air quality information for the entire US.
