The Environmental Park air monitoring station is situated on the boundary of the Port of Townsville next to access roads and the suburb of South Townsville. In June 2019 this site was upgraded to include real time continuous PM10 monitoring equipment.

The Port of Townsville operates and maintains a boundary air quality monitoring program on behalf of bulk mineral handling customers Glencore, South 32, Northern Stevedoring Services, Flinders TBSH Pty Ltd and Townsville Marine Logistics Pty Ltd.

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.
