Environment Minister Gabrielle Upton said NSW led the rest of the country in air quality monitoring and protection.
“These monitoring stations add to our sophisticated Air Quality Monitoring Network – the largest and most comprehensive in Australia,” Ms Upton said.
The new monitoring stations at Kitchener Park in Gunnedah, at Narrabri Airport and in the Parramatta CBD, have been completed and are operational.
The NSW Government is partnering with industry and the community to establish a monitoring network in the Namoi Valley.
“We are establishing a Namoi Regional Air Quality Advisory Committee to work on the North-West Air Quality Monitoring Network,” Ms Upton said.
“These new stations give us the information we need to understand air quality in areas where people work, live and play in NSW.”
The NSW Air Quality Monitoring Network collects information from 48 stations across the state, providing up-to-date information on air quality.
