    BCNA and Port People Host Air Quality Study

    The Victorian Ports Corporation has been monitoring air quality at Station Pier since January 2016. To help interpret the results, Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPAV) has suggested a citizen science project. The idea is that the collection of additional information such as smell, wind direction and photos can help in the interpretation of the data collected at the monitoring station. The BCNA has now developed an air quality study with EPAV and, with Port People, are seeking volunteers to record data. We particularly want volunteers from households or businesses who occasionally or regularly experience smells that are likely to come from shipping emissions at Station Pier or Webb Dock.

    If you are interested in participating, an information sheet explaining the project can be downloaded here.

    A diary has been prepared in which you can record information for this study. It can be completed either electronically (preferred) using this spreadsheet or completed by hand using this form. Diary entries will need to be emailed or posted back to us each month (details on how to do this are on each form).

    A report will be prepared at the conclusion of the project and made available to the community.
