Data from monitors at the St. Joseph Pump Station help determine exposure to air pollutants experienced by a segment of St. Joseph's population. 

The department began monitoring air quality here in 1980. The facility is in the parking lot of a pump station affiliated with St. Joseph Water Treatment Plant. Other businesses with nearby facilities include Holliday Sand and Gravel Co., which has a storage area north of the monitor, as well as St. Joe Petroleum Co., Missouri Gas Energy, MHC Kenworth, American Walnut Co. and Nor-Am Cold Storage. To the west, lay railroad tracks and the Missouri River, which divides Kansas and Missouri.
