Monitoring the environment

Air quality bulletins


We are seeking feedback on the way we display air quality information on EPA's website. This is your chance to have your say and let us know what you find useful about the information, whether you think the information is easy to navigate and use and if there are any changes you'd like to see and ideas or suggestions on how we could improve the information.

The consultation period closes on 9 March. To give feedback, complete the online survey

Interim changes to our air network, mainly in metropolitan Melbourne, started on 27 February 2015.

A number of instruments across the network will go offline for a short time, which will be noticeable on EPA’s website. The instruments coming offline are used to monitor seasonal pollution issues such as ozone, which is mainly detected over summer.

Across the network, we will continue to monitor for smoke from bushfires.

EPA measures a range of pollutants at each of its monitoring stations and provides air quality bulletins that aim to display air quality data in a meaningful form. This section describes the bulletins and how the information in them is calculated.
