Annual air quality statements
Each year we summarise the data collected from the Air Quality Monitoring Network into an annual statement. These statements provide information on particle and gaseous pollutants monitored throughout the state, comparing levels to national standards and highlighting the sources and climatic conditions over the year. Focus areas are often included outlining significant events or regions of interest, such as the Hunter industry-funded networks.
NSW annual air quality statement 2022 is the latest statement available. New South Wales experienced the best air quality on record across many measures in 2022. Pollutant levels were within national standards 100% of the time at many monitoring stations in 2022. There were no days with extremely poor air pollution levels.
