Baguio air quality getting better
by PIO release

The Environmental Management Bureau Cordillera said air quality in the different parts of the city continues to improve based on third quarter results obtained from five designated ambient air quality monitoring stations.

In his letter to Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan, EMB-CAR Director Reynaldo S. Digamo said results obtained at the Camp John Hay and EMB-CAR grounds were within the National Ambient Air Quality Guidelines and within the good range of air quality index.

Camp John Hay is one of the five monitoring stations in the city along with EMB-CAR grounds in Pacdal, Plaza Garden along Lower Session Road, and Burnham Park.

Digamo reported the results at the Mile High Center have decreased by 16 µg/m3 (micrograms per cubic meter) as compared to the results obtained during the second quarter monitoring for this year, from 32 µg/m3 down to 16 µg/m3.

Results at the Ayala Techno hub reportedly increased by 2 µg/m3, from 30 µg/m3 to 32 µg/m3; and those from the EMB-CAR grounds had decreased by 22 µg/m3, from 28 µg/m3 to only 6 µg/m3.

Results obtained at the Plaza Garden monitoring station along Lower Session Road were said to be within the fair range of air quality index. The average results compared to the second quarter monitoring this year decreased by 18 µg/m3, from 94 µg/m3 down to 76 µg/m3.

Based on the monitoring of the particulate matter (PM) in the city’s air by the equipment installed at Burnham Park, suspended PM were within the national standards at 150 and 50 µg/m3.

For PM, Digamo said that the average data results were 35 µg/m3, lower than the 57 µg/m3 recorded in the second quarter.

For suspended PM, the average data results obtained showed a decrease by 5 µg/m3 from 20 µg/m3 to in the second quarter to 15 µg/m3 in the third quarter.

The conduct of the regular ambient air quality monitoring is pursuant to Republic Act 8749, or the Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999.

As of an offshoot of the mandate, the ambient monitoring and technical services section of the environmental monitoring and enforcement division of the EMB conducts 24-hour exposure ambient air quality sampling and monitoring at the established sampling stations.
