Laramie, Wyo – The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) – Air Quality Division (AQD) has begun operating a mobile ambient monitoring station in Laramie, Wyoming.  

The mobile monitoring station began operations on April 5, 2017, and will be in place for approximately one year.  The mobile monitoring station includes gaseous monitors (NOx, SO2, O3 and methane/non-methane hydrocarbons), continuous PM10, continuous PM2.5, camera system, and meteorological instrumentation.   

The monitoring station is located inside the city limits of Laramie for population-based monitoring of the parameters listed.  All data from this site and a display of real-time concentrations can be found on www.wyvisnet.com

Throughout Wyoming, three mobile monitoring trailers have been established and are being operated to help characterize air quality at various locations.  The mobile monitoring stations are self-contained monitoring shelters that may be moved to different locations in a relatively short time frame.  

The department typically places a mobile monitoring trailer at a site for approximately one year at a time.
