Air quality and your health - Roadside Air Quality Monitoring Study Air quality and your health - Roadside Air Quality Monitoring Study <div class="ExternalClass370B8DF7944047E48F9EDDF3A5AA84EC"><p>​Metro Vancouver is conducting a pilot Roadside Air Quality Monitoring Study in Vancouver to measure air pollutants near a major roadway. Information from this study will inform the development of a national roadside monitoring strategy that will help us better understand the health effects associated with traffic-related air pollutants in our region.  </p><p>Pollutants levels are being measured at two stations - one beside a busy truck route on Clark Drive between East 11<sup><font size="1">th</font></sup> and 12<sup><font size="1">th</font></sup> Avenues, and the second is located away from traffic at the Sunny Hill Health Center for Children on Slocan Street in East Vancouver. Monitoring began in March, and will continue for over a year.</p><p>Motor vehicles are one of the largest sources of air pollutants in the region and according to local health researchers, living near a major roadway can increase the risk of developing lung cancer and asthma in children and adults. In Metro Vancouver, over 400,000 people, more than one fifth of the region’s population, live within 100 metres of a major roadway. </p><p>The study will measure several commonly measured air pollutants including: <a href="/services/air-quality/AirQualityPublications/PMFactsheet.pdf" target="_blank"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><font color="#0066cc">particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, black carbon, ground-level ozone</font></span></a>, volatile organic compounds, and carbon monoxide as well as meteorological measurements such as temperature, wind direction, and wind speed. </p><p>This pilot study is a partnership between Metro Vancouver, Environment Canada, and the University of Toronto, and is one of two such studies being conducted in Canada. The other is taking place concurrently in Toronto. Results are expected in 2017.</p></div>http://heimat-deutschland.info/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue10-roadside.jpg2015-06-25T07:00:00ZGP0|#75fdcc10-e11d-42e1-a77f-bfdf4cb451db;L0|#075fdcc10-e11d-42e1-a77f-bfdf4cb451db|Issue 10;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass7FE3572EE33F4770BB73E668368EC235"><p>Motor vehicles are one of the largest sources of air pollution in our region, and can increase the risk of developing asthma and lung cancer in children and adults.
