  1. Health benefits of cleaner air highlighted

    Improved air quality could keep vulnerable Cantabrians out of the hospital this winter.Dr. Ramon Pink, Canterbury Medical Officer of Health, said: “Clean air is necessary for health and wellbeing.  Winter air pollution in Canterbury, mainly caused by smoky chimneys, leads to far too many premature deaths, hospital admissions and days off work or school.”In 2012, a nationwide study showed air pollution from human-made PM10 was associated with 1000 premature deaths, 520 extra hospital admissi...

  2. Air quality data

    One of the main air pollutants in Canterbury is particulate matter smaller than 10 micrometres — or PM10. We monitor PM10 concentrations in our region's eight airsheds. This allows us to compare concentrations with national standards, assess variations over time and understand impacts of local weather conditions. Our findings are presented in monitoring and technical reports.Real-time air quality monitoring dataThe table below shows daily PM10 concentrations measured yesterday. Also shown...

  3. Improving air quality

    About this goalOne of the main air pollutants in Canterbury is particulate matter smaller than 10 micrometres — or PM10. We monitor PM10 concentrations in our region's eight monitored areas, known as airsheds. Each airshed has fixed requirements under the health-based National Environmental Standards for Air Quality (NESAQ).Currently, the Geraldine, Rangiora and Washdyke airsheds must experience no more than one ‘high pollution’ night per year. High pollution nights are determined as a...

  4. The science behind our air quality

    Our technical staff analyse air quality data to identify sources of air pollution and the relative significance of various contaminants.We research what has worked in the past and use different modelling methods to: predict concentrations in unmonitored areas identify likely areas of high concentration estimate population exposure to contaminants assess the likelihood of meeting targets predict the likely effect of various airshed management options. We often partner with other research organ...

  5. Improving air quality

    Improving our air quality is vital to creating a healthier, happier region to live in. We developed the Canterbury Air Regional Plan with your valuable input.  The plan sets out how we are going to manage air pollution from home heating, industry and other sources like outdoor burning, dust and odour.  It will help us meet national air quality standards.What are the air plan measures?These measures recognise that we are all in this together. That homeowners, industry, large businesses and land...
