Parkland Airshed group to meet

You can last a few days without water but you can’t last a few minutes without air.

You can last a few days without water but you can’t last a few minutes without air.

Those were some of the words Parkland Airshed Management Zone (PAMZ) executive director Kevin Warren used to encourage people to attend an annual general meeting on June 20. “Water quality is something more people are aware of but air quality is just as important,” Warren said.

“The quality of air really does impact your health and the environment so it is a good idea to be aware of the kinds of things that are present in the air.”

PAMZ will hold the meeting in Bentley from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Bentley Community Hall at 4821 50th Street.

Warren says topics include air quality monitoring results last year, and plans for monitoring this year. The plans include monitoring locomotive emissions, major highway emissions and the monitoring of the City of Lacombe.

“The last time we monitored Lacombe was in 2005 so this will give us an idea of how air quality has changed,” Warren said.
