Simon Corbell is letting us know that a report on air quality at the 2010 Summernats has come back with a big green tick.
“I am pleased to see that data on air quality taken during the 2010 Summernats event and the following weekend showed, on both occasions, the quality of the air was acceptable and well within the National Environment Protection Measure (NEPM) guideline for ambient air quality.”
The testing was commissioned by the Environment Protection Authority to determine if concentrations of atmospheric particulate matter measuring less than 10 micrograms (?g) in diameter (PM10) of the NEPM 50 ?g m-3 over a 24â€‘hour period guideline.
The air quality was acceptable on both weekends, and while the PM10 concentrations were higher on the weekend of Summernats, the results were within national guidelines and should allay concerns about air quality for those residents who live near Exhibition Park, where the event is held.
