The Environment Department’s Air Quality Bureau operates a network of ambient air monitors that continually sample the air across New Mexico, except for Bernalillo County and tribal lands. Click here to go to the NMED Air Monitoring web site, where you can view photos of the sites, learn more about what pollutants we monitor and their potential health effects. You can select data for any of the sites, and customize a report or graph to meet your needs. There are also maps and links to other sources of air monitoring data and information.
