Stony Mountain

Conklin Lookout AMS18

(Longitude: -111.17269 Latitude: 55.62141)

Stony Mountain AMS is located 5.5 km west of the community of Conklin, AB, at an elevation of 673 m, near a provincial fire tower. The site location for Stony Mountain was selected by Environment Canada and Alberta Environment and Parks to provide a regional monitoring perspective within the southern portion of the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB). Stony Mountain AMS is operated by WBEA as one of four enhanced deposition monitoring stations commissioned under the Joint Canada - Alberta Implementation Plan for Oil Sands Monitoring (JOSM). 

The Stony Mountain station contains analyzers that continuously measure sulphur dioxide (SO2), reduced sulphur compounds (TRS), ozone (O3), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen oxides (NOX), total hydrocarbons (THC), non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHC), methane (CH4) and fine particulate matter (PM2.5). Temperature, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, solar radiation, precipitation and surface wetness are also continuously measured. 

At Stony Mountain, WBEA operates samplers for the non-continuous parameters PAHs, VOCs, ions, coarse and fine particulate matter and precipitation on behalf of Environment Canada and AEMERA.

All air quality monitoring data displayed on this site by the Wood Buffalo Environmental Association is directly from monitoring equipment output signals. Displayed data is generally indicative of ambient conditions, however, it has not been reviewed, validated, nor processed for baseline drift and other fluctuations by qualified technicians. Final processed and validated data values may vary from values displayed on this site. A displayed value of 'n/d' indicates air monitoring data is not available at the corresponding time due to scheduled maintenance and/or instrument calibration. Charted data is locked to the range of the analyzer by default, and can be unlocked by the appropriate control.

Historical Monitoring Data

PLEASE NOTE: When ambient concentrations of any pollutant WBEA measures exceeds the Alberta Ambient Air Quality Objective, WBEA has an immediate Reporting Protocol that is put into action. WBEA analyzers continuously monitor ambient air, and in the event of an exceedence the following steps are taken:

1 - The data collection system automatically sends out alarm notifications to WBEA personnel and an independent third party alarm monitoring company. 

2 - The alarm company acknowledges the incoming alarm and reports the data and supporting information such as wind conditions, locations, time, etc, to Alberta Environment & Sustainable Resource Development (AESRD) in real time, or as soon as becoming aware of it.

3 - As the provincial regulator, AESRD uses the data and information from WBEA to follow up as appropriate.
