King's Lynn gets air quality warning

Sep 19 2008 Read 670 Times

Residents in parts of King's Lynn have been warned about deteriorating air quality in the area.

Air monitoring from environmental health officers have shown an increase in the concentration of nitrogen dioxide in the Gaywood Clock area of the town, EDP24 reports.

It has been proposed that the area be designated an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA).

Brian Long, cabinet member for the environment, said: "Being designated as an AQMA means that the levels of pollutants will be closely monitored and appropriate actions taken where necessary."

He added that the council has already applied to the government for additional money to buy extra air monitoring equipment and that noting the increase in levels marks the first step to improving air quality in the area.

GreenFacts notes the main causes of nitrogen dioxide pollution in Europe is road traffic and energy production.

It added that the gas can give rise to acid rain, which can have an adverse effect on water quality and public health.ADNFCR-1845-ID-18788619-ADNFCR
