There are few things more important than the air we breathe. Its quality can have a major impact on our health and surroundings. Horizons is responsible for monitoring air quality and working with communities to achieve National Environmental Standards.

High winds, low population densities, low transport movement and a lack of polluting industries all benefit air quality in our Region. However, we need to make sure we effectively manage common localised pressures such as spraying, burnoff, odours and smokey fires to reduce any potential health effects caused by fine particles in the air.
