news for asthmatic and any respiratory disease sufferers. A new Real Time Air Monitoring
Station will opened by the Mayor of Rugby, Councillor Jerry Roodhouse, on 18 June 1999,
situated at The Rugby Lions Football Club car park.
The new Air Monitoring Station will monitor air quality and the concentration of
pollutants that are present in the air that we all breath. The Station will also look at
wind direction, and will ascertain where certain pollutants come from. The data from the
Station is invaluable and it is hoped that the information collected may soon be available
to the public.
Previously in Rugby air quality monitoring has only been able to determine the
concentration of a certain pollutant over a monthly period.
The future in Rugby now looks good as Real Time means the Council will be able to
correlate any data daily. In addition the data from the Station will prove to be
invaluable in determining current and future trends in the air quality and pollution
levels in the Rugby.
The Station is a joint initiative by Rugby Borough Council, The Environmental Agency,
Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Rugby Cement.
