Monitoring of air quality at Cadia Valley Operations (Cadia) is managed in accordance with the Cadia Air Quality Monitoring Program (Cadia AQMP) which was approved by NSW Department of Planning and Environment in July 2014.
Air Quality monitoring is conducted using Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM) monitors and Dust Deposition Gauges.
Monitoring undertaken includes:
PM10 is monitored using Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM) monitors, which measure average PM10 concentration every 15 minutes, continuously
Dust deposition monitoring is conducted using dust deposition gauges (DG). The gauges are collected once per month.
Visual dust is monitored during routine inspections and when complaints are received. Where excessive dust generation has been identified, mitigation measures will be implimented.
