This monitoring station is located in the grounds of the Gladstone Area Water Board’s Boat Creek pumping station on the Mt Larcom, Gladstone Road, north of Gladstone.

Established in June 2008, the station monitors emissions from the industrial area north of Gladstone. As part of the Clean and Healthy Air for Gladstone Project, the station measured levels of a range of hazardous air pollutants including heavy metals and organic compounds between November 2008 and June 2010.

About air quality index values

Our scientists create an air quality index by converting measured pollutant concentrations into index values which make it easier to interpret air quality data by reducing the complexity associated with pollutant concentrations.

The index value is the pollutant concentration expressed as a proportion of the National Environment Protection Measure for Ambient Air Quality (Air NEPM) standard or the Environmental Protection (Air) Policy 2008 (Air EPP) objective.
