  • Where does this data come from?

    EPA has monitoring sites in population centres around Victoria.

    Most of our air monitoring sites are next to roads. This is because most Victorians live and work close to roads. 

    EPA and VICSES can also deploy equipment to monitor air quality nearby an incident like a fire. 

    The air quality where you are might be different to what you see on EPA AirWatch, even if there’s a monitoring site close to you. This is because there are many factors that can affect air quality. For example, wind direction and smoke from wood fires.

    Data on EPA AirWatch comes directly from our air monitoring stations using various types of monitoring equipment and methods. This data may be adjusted later according to set criteria to account for instrument errors, power interruptions and other technical issues.

    EPA aims to locate our ambient monitoring stations so they give a good representation of the air quality experienced by the public. As most of the Victorian population lives and works close to roads, most of our stations are in population centres next to roads. This can mean we do not always comply with one of the requirements of the Australian Standard for siting (AS 3580.1.1), which specifies that air monitoring stations should be more than 50 metres away from a road. Currently, Footscray is the only EPA air monitoring site that meets this requirement.
