Where's MAMU?Where's MAMU?<div class="ExternalClassF3741C432C034CBDAB614BA2D29B7134"><p>Metro Vancouver's mobile air monitoring unit (MAMU) has been very busy this year.</p><p>At the end of August, MAMU completed a four-month monitoring program in Tsawwassen in collaboration with Tsawwassen First Nation and Port Metro Vancouver. Monitoring was conducted at two locations to help address local air quality concerns raised by Tsawwassen First Nation and residents of Tsawwassen Lands related to the Deltaport Terminal, rail and transportation activities in the Roberts Bank area. The results will be compared to our <a href="/services/air-quality/AirQualityPublications/AQOFactsheet.pdf" target="_blank">air quality objectives</a> and the nearest permanent air quality monitoring station in Pebble Hill Park.</p><p>Coordinated by Port Metro Vancouver, the monitoring study also included some additional monitoring by Westshore Terminals, and the collection of dustfall samples which are being analyzed for coal content in a commercial laboratory.</p><p>Following the Tsawwassen Lands study, MAMU sampled the air from late September to early November at Musqueam Park in Vancouver. This study will assist with addressing odour issues on the <a href="/services/liquid-waste/construction-maintenance/ConstructionProjectPublications/Fact%20Sheet.pdf" target="_blank">Highbury Interceptor</a> and provide baseline data in advance of our proposed Air Management Facility.</p><p>Planning is underway now to deploy MAMU in the Village of Lions Bay where MAMU will be used to assess the baseline air quality in Lions Bay and how it is impacted by residential wood burning.</p></div>http://www.metrovancouver.org/metroupdate/PublishingImages/issue16-mamu.jpg2015-12-22T08:00:00ZGP0|#6818d587-f8ee-4672-81e8-10422dd671aa;L0|#06818d587-f8ee-4672-81e8-10422dd671aa|Issue 16;GTSet|#d14ffe11-45dc-48fb-8684-ff109cf15a74<div class="ExternalClass49B5D0D0ED3043C383B2E5938DDCF3C3"><p>Our mobile air monitoring unit (MAMU) has been very busy this year.
