Enhanced Community Air Monitoring
In response to feedback we heard from the community last fall, we committed to developing an enhanced air monitoring program, CC-ND Air Monitoring, in a coordinated and collaborative manner with existing air monitoring networks in the Commerce City and North Denver communities. Montrose Air Quality Services (Montrose), a third-party team of engineers, scientists, analysts and technicians, will finalize and implement CC-ND Air Monitoring and provide our community with easy-to-access air monitoring information from sensors reporting in near real-time, laboratory analysis and through a mobile monitoring van.
The community helped us shape this important program through two public meetings in May (recordings are available below). At the meetings, community members learned more about air monitoring, provided input on where additional air monitors should be located , and asked experts from Suncor Energy (U.S.A.) Inc. and Montrose questions about the program. We thank those who participated and provided us with helpful feedback and input.
Suncor and Montrose are using feedback received during the public meetings to finalize components for the initial evaluation phase of CC-ND Air Monitoring. The program will launch later this summer, and we will be back in touch with the community at that time.
We recognize the community likely has some questions about air monitoring and all that it entails, so here is a quick overview:

More about Montrose
Montrose’s air quality division is one of the largest air quality measurement groups in the world and specializes in not only the measurement of air quality, but also the development and evaluation of emerging technologies for conducting these measurements. With an air quality office in Denver’s Sunnyside neighborhood, Montrose has been selected based upon their extensive experience conducting similar air monitoring programs, including Denver’s “Love My Air”.
After receiving community feedback, we’ll work with Montrose to finalize program components for the initial evaluation phase of the air monitoring program, which will launch this summer. We will be back in touch with the community when the program launches to share information and updates on this page.
