  • 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.

    We also collect data from a citizen science project. The Inner Melbourne Air Monitoring project sees citizen scientists working with us to help build an understanding of air pollution impacts.

    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.

Note that Kingsville and Spotswood are temporary air monitoring sites that are part of a citizen science project.

Since July 2022, EPA's equipment near the Stevensons Brothers Industries (SBI) landfill in Ballarto Rd, Cranbourne, has been monitoring hydrogen sulphide in the air every 5 minutes.  

For more information, visit SBI landfill.

  • Disclaimer

    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.

  • Check the air monitoring network status

    Traralgon: Air monitoring station is offline due to routine maintenance and data is not being collected at this site. EPA expects data to become available on the website from 5pm, 19/06/2024. The air quality forecast for Latrobe Valley is expected to be GOOD. (19 June 2024)

    Footscray: Air monitoring station is being relocated nearby. Until the new site is established limited air monitoring information for Footscray will be displayed on AirWatch. Air quality information for Altona is available on the AirWatch website (27 June 2023)

    Fog: Fog can cause low visibility readings within EPA’s air monitoring network due to high levels of moisture in the air. EPA staff will monitor visibility readings during periods forecast for high levels of fog. (24 May 2024)
