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 2019 is the latest statement available. Air quality in New South Wales was greatly affected by the continuing intense drought conditions and unprecedented extensive bushfires during 2019, resulting in poorer air quality throughout the State.
