The Vermont Air Quality & Climate Division (AQCD) began operating an air toxics monitoring program in 1993 based on concerns with the potential health risks associated with specific air toxic pollutants or hazardous air pollutants (HAP) in the ambient air. The specific HAPs of concern pose human health risks associated with cancer, lung disease and other acute or chronic health problems.
The quicklook reports below are data summaries retrieved from the Air Quality System (AQS). AQS is maintained by the Technology Transfer Network (TTN) of the U.S. EPA and contains ambient air pollution data collected by EPA, state, local, and tribal air pollution control agencies. The reports below are updated on a quaterly basis.
