The table and graphs below show:

  •  the percentage of air samples for each monitoring site with PM10 levels in the ‘good’, ‘acceptable’, ‘alert', or ‘action’ categories relevant to the NES and regional guideline for currently monitored airsheds over the period 2007 to 2018.
  • the number of exceedances of the NES for PM10 of 50 µg/m3 for a 24 hour period for each monitoring site. The eight exceedances identified in Hamilton in 2013 have been exempted by the Ministry for the Environment due to exceptional circumstances, and therefore do not count as a breach of the NES.

 

Comparison of 24 hour average PM10 levels measured at Hamilton, Taupō, Te Kūiti, Tokoroa, Putaruru, Turangi, Cambridge, Te Awamutu, Morrinsville and Thames from 2007 – 2018 to air quality indicator categories.
