Air Quality Monitoring Results in Sudbury

Environmental Monitoring Team 


Representatives from Vale, citizens from the community, and an official from the Ministry of the Environment meet regularly as part of an Environmental M​onitoring Team.   

Established as part of the Ministry of the Environment’s Site-Specific Air Standard Approval for Nickel and Environmental Compliance Approval for Vale’s Copper Cliff Smelter, the team meets twice a year to review progress and activities.   

See our most recent action plan progress reports and updates, below, as well as quarterly results from 24-hour average ambient concentration measurements of total suspended particulate, nickel, cobalt, other metals and sulfur dioxide. Download this glossary of technical terms here​.
