In line with our Environmental Authority (EA) regulated by the Queensland Government, we measure and track air quality through:
- short-term hourly results
- daily average results
- annual average results.
In addition to our rigorous internal monitoring and auditing processes, the Queensland Government Department of Environmental Science (DES) has independent access to Mount Isa air quality monitoring network data, with information provided hourly and automatically.
DES regulates our performance and is responsible for ensuring we comply with the strict conditions of our EA and all other relevant environmental legislation.
We aim to perform better than the limits in our EA to maintain compliance and to minimise impacts to our community where we work and live.
We encourage Mount Isa residents to review air quality results:
