Air Toxics Monitoring

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 contaminants (HAC) in the ambient air. The specific HACs (EPA refers to these compounds as Hazardous Air Polluntants (HAP)) of concern pose human health risks associated with cancer, lung disease and other acute or chronic health problems.
