Air Quality and Emissions

Air Banner
 

Saskatchewan has established a provincial network of 19 continuous air monitoring stations. These stations track emissions from industry, mining, agriculture, forest fires and our vehicles. What those tracking stations show is that air quality across our province is good to excellent. Air pollution levels are normally quite low in Saskatchewan. The major exceptions are during forest fires and pockets of sour gas emissions connected to the energy sector.

Key Indicators
