AQ Monitor Locations

Below are tentative locations for air quality monitors, based on results from our survey and input from the steering committee. Factors used to determine locations were:

– measuring air quality in areas of highest concern (high level of outdoor activity, concentration of vulnerable receptors: kids, seniors, cyclists, exercisers)

– variations in air quality though-out the neighbourhood, allowing us to assess drift and influence of different sources

– impact of the trains idling the BI Line (when they’re there vs when they’re not)


  1. Hastings & Clark                     highest concentration of Port truck activity
  2. Clark & Adanac                       where bike route crosses Clark
  3. B.I. Line south of Raymur       where train engines idle before entering Port, Raycam, Stamps
  4. Lord Seymour School              elementary school between Clark and BI Line
  5. Union & Raymur                     bike route, Stamps Place outdoor playground, Villa Cathay
  6. Strathcona Park                      high concentration of outdoor activity
  7. MacLean Park                         playground, active park, Metro’s monitor site
  8. Strathcona School                   school, daycare, playground, community centre
  9. Indigenous Daycare Centre     daycare, Hastings St. away from Clark
