Air Quality in Calderdale

Air quality is a term used to describe how clean or polluted the air is.  Good air quality really means that the air is clean.  In Calderdale the biggest contribution to air pollution comes from road traffic, although other activities and national pollution incidents can have an effect.  Vehicle engines produce both nitrogen dioxide and fine particulate matter (like smoke but not always visible).  For this reason the Council measures these types of pollution close to major roads and in areas where a problem is known or suspected to exist.
