State to install station to monitor city’s air quality

The state is installing an air-quality monitoring station near Brockton’s Gilmore School, a move aimed at ensuring residents of the heavily populated, and largely industrial, section are not being exposed to unacceptable levels of pollution.

Monday’s announcement during a City Hall ceremony outlined a plan to track fine particulate matter in the air at Buckley Playground on Clinton Street. Readings will be taken on an hourly basis around the clock, officials said, and the data will then be posted on a state website so residents can check on the levels themselves.
