Liverpool will be monitoring the air that we breathe in real time all day tomorrow (Thursday, 20 June) – as the city marks Clean Air Day.
A specially commissioned Air Quality Monitoring Vehicle (AQMV), supplied by air data specialists Enviro Technology, will be on patrol to give a second-by-second picture to better identify the scale of the city’s air pollution hot spots.
The AQMV will be patrolling the city for 72 hours to provide mobile data, supplementing the information collected on a monthly basis by the council at 146 monitoring locations across the city.
This year’s Clean Air Day comes as Liverpool City Council continues to build on a pledge made in 2017 by the Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson to tackle air quality, by delivering a huge raft of environmental initiatives. During one of them on June 26, the city will welcome the government’s Tree Champion, Sir William Worsley, to unveil a special eco-project as part of the city’s Urban GreenUp programme and to mark the Mersey Forest’s 25th anniversary.
