Air Quality Metro Vancouver

-list of monitoring stations MetroVancouver
http://www.metrovancouver.org/about/publications/Publications/LowerFraserValleyAirQualityMonitoringNetwork2012StationInformation.pdf

we are interested in:

T22-Bby Burmont (KM tank farm)

T24-Bby North (Chevron tank farm)

T23-Capitol Hill (monitor also the refinery?)

T4-Kensington (south of Shellburn, monitors that too?)

Westridge terminal doesn’t have a monitoring station! Probably we should ask MetroV. to test the air, or consider to ask the university or a lab. Could be useful to have VOC and THC data for Westridge.

VOC-Volatile Organic Compounds , THC-Total Hydrocarbons are sampled not everyday (not-continuous = every 3rd or 6th day, cannot catch bad emissions happening in other days!)
and are sampled only at T22 and T24
