The Air Quality Division of Wyoming’s Department of Environmental Quality has begun operating a Mobile Beta Attenuation Monitor (BAM) trailer in the Town of Afton.
According to information provided by the DEQ, the BAM Trailer will include “continuous particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) and meteorological instrumentation.”
“The BAM Trailer will be located inside the city limits of the Town of Afton for population based monitoring of the [particulate matter PM2.5 and PM10],” said Keith Guille, public information officer for the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality. “The BAM Trailer is a self-contained monitoring shelter that may be moved to different statewide locations in a relatively short time frame. The WDEQ-AQD is planning to locate and operate the BAM Trailer at the Afton location for approximately one year.”
According to Guille, the Air Quality Division of Wyoming’s Department of Environmental Quality “operates monitoring stations throughout the State of Wyoming.”
“Real-time monitored data, including meteorological data, can be found at www.wyvisnet.com,” he said.
