Following the 2019 – 2020 bushfire season, the following changes have been made to our network:

  • Our Grafton, Lismore, Cooma, and Merimbula emergency monitoring sites have been retained as part of our Rural Air Quality Monitoring Network. These stations will help expand the network in the state’s north east and south east.
  • Monitoring sites at Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie have been retained and will continue to report hourly data. Negotiations continue with councils on a permanent location for a comprehensive air quality monitoring station on the Mid-North Coast.
