May 24, 2016 - The department added a sulfur dioxide air monitor to the existing Rider Trail, I-70 monitoring site. The addition of a sulfur dioxide monitor at this site is to evaluate sulfur dioxide levels in the general area. Any sulfur dioxide concentrations monitored at this site may be due to several emissions sources in the area. If the monitor records sulfur dioxide at levels of concern, the department will gather additional information to try to determine which sources are causing or contributing to the levels of concern. The department will evaluate the levels recorded after one year of operation and decide whether or not it is appropriate to continue operating a sulfur dioxide monitor at this location.

The department maintains a summary report, which is updated weekly and is available at See the listing for “Rider Trail, I-70” for SO2 data from this monitor.
