|Mount Cheam and a poor air quality day|
Air quality is important to everyone that lives in the Fraser Valley especially to those of us in Chilliwack and the eastern Fraser Valley. It is not that we care more, in fact, our air quality is similar to that of Metro Greater Vancouver, but, poor air is more visible here across open farmland against our mountain backdrop. It interferes with our appreciation of our beautiful views. We want our skies to be clear blue as shown below. Alas, the picture above was taken early this morning at about 6:30 a.m.; it shows some of the poor air visibility being caused, in part, by forest fires burning in the United States. Hopefully, these fires will soon be put out, I wish our American neighbours well, and the wonderful air quality this farming community usually enjoys can return.
How can we improve it and do you go about checking the air quality? Here are a few sites:
- BC Air Quality what can we do to improve it?
- Daily Visibility Updates, very cool, Clear Air Your Guide to Visibility in Metro Vancouver and the Lower Fraser Valley
- Environment Canada Health Air Index for BC
- City of Chilliwack Air Quality
- The Weather Network Chilliwack Air Quality
- Paper: BC Air Quality
Chilliwack has some of the best air quality in the world.
Imagine living here....
