In December 2017, the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA) installed a fine particulate air pollution monitoring station in Lake Forest Park near the intersection of Bothell Way and Ballinger Way.

The monitor is partially disguised as a Park Bench with a moderately sized box behind it that contains the monitoring station equipment.

The station primarily monitors fine particle pollution (PM2.5) that is often a byproduct of wood stove and vehicle exhaust.

According to the PSCAA, “Particle pollution poses serious public health impacts and is the most important criteria air pollutant challenge facing our region.”

PSCAA is interested in collecting data throughout the Puget Sound to better understand air quality and its health risks.

How do I see the data going back before yesterday, if I wanted to see when air quality is at its worst and for how long?
