On August 28, 2018, City Council approved an air quality testing agreement (Agreement) with Ajax Analytics for an ongoing air quality monitoring and testing near the Extraction well sites and in nearby neighborhoods, as well as for the development of a web page to report air quality monitoring results. The air quality program is a combined effort of Colorado State University and Ajax Analytics. Data is being generated using the following sources:
- Using Colorado State University’s Plume Tracker,
- Canister testing and analysis,
- Ajax Analytics’ monitoring stations, and
- The CDPHE’s Colorado Air Monitoring Mobile Lab (CAMML)
The Agreement requires Ajax and CSU to summarize the air quality data and supporting information in a quarterly report. The first quarter draft report can be viewed here. This report addresses air quality measurements and data collected from October 4, 2018, through March 31, 2019. Representatives of Ajax Analytics and Colorado State University will present the report to City Council at a Study Session on May 14, 2019.
