WYAMZ

The Western Yellowhead Air Management Zone Board of Directors has been formed and is proceeding to implement an air management zone in the west central region of the province. The WYAMZ area will be the second official air management zone in Saskatchewan and is in line with the directive from the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment (CCME) under the Canada-wide Air Quality Management System (AQMS) that Canada will have regional Airsheds comprised of local (Provincial/Territorial) Air Management Zones.

The approach is designed to collect credible, continuous real-time air quality information through collaborative efforts. Proposed data collection includes continuous monitors located in the Cities of Saskatoon and Lloydminster, with a passive network in the surrounding region.

Air Quality Data

There are currently 6 Air quality instruments reporting live air quality around Saskatoon and Lloydminster. Meadow Lake, Unity, Maidstone, Kindersley, Lloydminster West and Lloydminster East are now available to display live air quality readings on this site. Other air monitoring stations are available from the Saskatchewan Environment's Air Quality Index Page.
