Parkland Airshed Management Zone (PAMZ) wants to hear any concerns about area air quality.

The non-profit organization that monitors and manages air quality in the region is holding a public meeting on May 15 at Didsbury’s Eldon Foote Hall.

PAMZ is eager to find out if the increase in oil and gas activity related to horizontal drilling in the Olds and Didsbury area has generated concerns about air quality among residents.

The locations of those concerns will be considered when PAMZ sets out to select six monitoring sites for its mobile air monitoring trailer next year. Complaints to provincial regulators will also be used to pick monitoring spots.

The public air quality issues meeting is free and runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the hall in the old train station at 1811 20th St.

An Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board technical expert will be on hand to make a presentation on gas flaring and answer questions.
