    Volunteers Needed for Air Quality Monitoring

    The BCNA recently signed a Letter of Agreement with the EPA to participate in a Citizen Science Project. This project was explained earlier in our April 2020 Newsletter. The BCNA’s role in the 3-year project is to identify ‘hosts’ for the monitoring equipment, to report on data collected and to work with the EPA in reporting on the project.

    We are now seeking volunteer hosts from the following areas: Orcades Mews, Morley Street, Morley Mews, Australis Circuit, Canberra Parade, Canberra Mews and Swallow Street (between Orcades Mews and Australis Circuit) and Hobsons Bay Parade. This is the area most affected by emissions from cruise ships and the Spirit of Tasmania ferries.

    The EPA will provide, install, maintain, and insure six sensors for the project. The sensors are small - approximately the size of a hand. They are placed in an external area, such as on a handrail, pergola, or gutter. They need access to power and Wi-Fi. Residents who agree to host the equipment sign a Letter of Agreement with the EPA. If you are interested in hosting a sensor, please contact the Secretary at
