Prof. Collett's group at CSU, in partnership with Ajax Analytics, has been monitoring air quality in Erie, Colorado, since July 2021. The goal is to assess air quality impacts from oil and gas production and other sources. 10 monitoring stations across Erie examine concentrations of air toxics, ozone precursors, and other VOCs near oil and gas facilities, near the Front Range Landfill, and at a regional background location. Current monitoring includes collection of weekly-integrated VOC canisters, operation of APIS PID sensors with event-triggered VOC canister collection, and periodic deployment of the CSU mobile plume-tracker to identify and track emission plumes and their transport to nearby neighborhoods. VOC canisters are also available for residents to check out to collect their own samples during air quality episodes. More information about the program is available here.
