New South Wales Air Quality Statement 2013

Compared with previous years, NSW experienced poorer air quality during 2013, due mainly to drier and hotter weather through the middle of the year and the impacts of bushfires in September, October and November.

However by international standards, air quality in NSW is generally good and has been steadily improving over time.

This air quality statement for 2013 is based on data collected by the Office of Environment and Heritage at its monitoring networks across the state and includes a particular focus on air quality in the Hunter Valley.
