Additional wildfire smoke resources:
"Realtime" AQ Maps & AQI:
  • "UPDATED" EPA AirNow (Realtime AQI)
  • [Select "Monitors - PM (PM2.5 & PM10)" & "Contours - PM2.5", then zoom in ("Ozone & PM" will show No Data, ND).]

  • "Previous" EPA AirNow (Realtime AQI)
  • Previous EPA AirNow AQ site - only shows contours. Note that AQI contours are made by an algorithm - if a District monitor in the area is down or not reporting then the map shown could be erroneious (as the algorithm will use outside monitor data).

  • Community-based Particulate (smoke) Sensors - PurpleAir Unofficial air quality data - PurpleAir sensors are being used on a trial basis and cannot be used for official air quality readings. Although AQI is shown, it is not relying upon District monitors (see EPA AirNow above). [Switch the Map Data Layer dialogue box in the lower left hand corner from “None” to “AQ and U” to apply a correction factor.]
