Air Pollution Equipment and Device Information

The City and staff from Queens College are installing air quality monitors on light and utility poles to study neighborhood air pollution.

The devices:
• Are located 10 to 12 feet off the ground on streetlight, signal and other utility poles.
• Are shaped like a box and measure 2 ft by 1 ft.
• Have tubes sticking out.
• Have an NYC Health sticker attached.

You can report damage to a monitoring device or you can get more information about the NYC Community Air Survey.

Complaints about air quality and requests for air testing are not accepted.
