Air Quality Monitoring - Haulbowline

Cork County Council 2/1/05

Prior to any work being carried out on the steelworks site on Haulbowline, four air quality monitoring stations are being installed, as shown on the map. Each of these will be equipped with dust deposition monitors which will give monthly readings of dust collected from the atmosphere. In addition, and due mainly to the proximity of the Naval Base to the steelworks site, real-time dust monitors are being installed in the two monitoring locations on Haulbowline island. These will take hourly readings of atmospheric dust and will be equipped to give early warning of a problem arising from contractor's operations. Should dust levels exceed recognized limits, warning text messages will be transmitted to County Council personnel on site, who will take action to address the cause.
