Air Monitoring and Sampling Reports

Missouri Department of Natural Resources -- The department continues to conduct field operations from an observation trailer near the Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill.  The department is conducting air monitoring through an AreaRae multi-sensor system that collects data on volatile organic compounds, hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide and gamma radiation on a 24 hour per day/7 day per week basis.  The department is also conducting air monitoring activities, at 13 locations using a hand-held hydrogen-sulfide detector, a benzene detector and an odor detector. This monitoring occurs around the perimeter of Bridgeton Sanitary Landfill two times per day or as needed based upon community complaints received between the two daily cycles. Air monitoring reports will be posted twice weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays along with the Department of Health and Senior Services evaluation reviews.

Additional information about air sampling and monitoring can be found on the Archived Reports webpage.

Sept. 3, 2015 -- Daily Air Monitoring Results -- Air monitoring activities continue as the department collects data via our AreaRAE system on a 24 hour per day/7 day per week basis.  Daily monitoring events by the department continue to be completed twice per day on a scheduled path.

AreaRae Operations - In times of extreme weather and atmospheric conditions, sensitive electronic equipment, including AreaRae air monitors, may be set to standby mode to avoid damage to the units. When this occurs, the use of handheld air monitoring devices will continue, with additional use and deployments added as is necessary and possible, in addition to the regular, twice-daily scheduled paths. Supplemental use of the handheld air monitors will continue until atmospheric and weather conditions allow for the AreaRae monitors to be brought back into operation.
