Environmental Scientists are responsible for operating an extensive ambient air quality monitoring network in Wyandotte and Johnson Counties.

Air Monitoring StationThis program monitors the ambient levels of pollutants such as ozone (O3), carbon monoxide (CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM). This program also operates a complex weather station. Federal health levels, or National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS), are set for each of six major pollutants. This program monitors these six pollutants to insure that their levels do not increase above the NAAQS. This group coordinates closely with the Mid America Regional Council and the other state and local agencies in the region to insure that good data is collected and reported.
