The map above is not able to show all state air quality monitors. To see the whole set, go to the Air Quality Now tab below and click on DEQ's Air Quality Index which will bring up a map with many additional state monitors. Round icons represent permanent state air quality monitors, triangular icons represent temporary smoke monitors (when deployed).

Have you checked out Oregon Department of Environmental Quality's upgraded Air Quality Index yet? The color-coded tool reports how clean the air is at over 37 monitors around the state and provides information on potential health risks. The index now puts more data at your fingertips allowing you to view weather data, generate reports using historical data and more. And there's a mobile app now too! Just search for OregonAir in your smart phone's app store.
Check out these video tutorials on the new features of the AQI and remember to bookmark the site before wildfire season.
