Air Quality monitoring stations are located throughout Mecklenburg County to determine peak air pollution levels, typical levels in populated areas, air pollution transported into and outside the city or region, and air pollution levels near specific sources.
The University Meadows site is located 15 kilometers (9.3 miles) downwind of the central business district of Charlotte, NC. It is oriented along the primary summer wind vector (SW to NE) which intersects the central business district. The site should measure peak ozone concentrations in Mecklenburg County. Ozone concentrations are expected to be the highest at this monitoring station. Data is used to assess compliance with the
National Ambient Air Quality Standards for ground-level ozone.
