Air Monitoring Data  
DEP staff member from the Bureau of Air Monitoring and Mobile Sources

DEP staff member from the Bureau of Air Monitoring and Mobile Sources sets up canisters to conduct air sampling in Apalachicola.


Both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and DEP put in place additional air monitoring in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Currently there is no active special air monitoring related to the spill. During the active response period, DEP conducted regular monitoring in Fort Walton Beach and Apalachicola (Eastpoint). All sampling results collected showed Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) values well below levels of concern for public health.

Complete data collected by DEP is available for Fort Walton Beach and Apalachicola (Eastpoint). EPA conducted daily monitoring in Pensacola and Panama City during the oil spill. EPA data is available at: www.epa.gov/bpspill/air.html. Regular air quality information and data is available on the DEP website at: www.dep.state.fl.us/air/air_quality/airdata.htm.
