Mt. Lebanon residents can now access real-time air quality data from air monitors in several locations all across town.
The municipality purchased the monitors, manufactured by PurpleAir, and placed two at the Mt. Lebanon Municipal Building, and one each for the recreation center and public works complex, both on Cedar Boulevard. Other PurpleAir monitors are located at Keystone Oaks High School, Jefferson Middle School and Foster, Lincoln and Hoover Elementary schools. A few more are in private homes.
The monitors are designed for either indoor or outdoor use. Built-in WiFi enables the monitors to upload the data to a map, which you can access at www.purpleair.com by clicking on “Map.”
