(Afton, Wyo.) – Wyoming’s Department of Environmental Quality – Air Quality Division (AQD) has begun operating a Mobile Beta Attenuation Monitor (BAM) trailer in the town of Afton, Wyoming.

The BAM Trailer will include continuous particulate matter (PM2.5 and PM10) and meteorological instrumentation. The BAM Trailer will be located inside the city limits of the town of Afton for population based monitoring of the parameters listed above.

The BAM Trailer is a self-contained monitoring shelter that may be moved to different statewide locations in a relatively short time frame.  The WDEQ-AQD is planning to locate and operate the BAM Trailer at the Afton location for approximately one (1) year.

The AQD operates monitoring stations throughout the State of Wyoming.  Real-time monitored data, including meteorological data, can be found at www.wyvisnet.com.
