Air pollution monitors sniff Coleman atmosphere By VERN DECOUX COLEMAN (CNP Bureau) The Alberta department of the environment, air quality control branch is this week setting up four high volume sampler stations here to test dust fall. Besides the dust stations a trailer equipped with a monitor to test for sulphur dioxide and hydrogen sulphide has been set up. The trailer unit is also equipped with equipment to test wind velocity in the area and a hydrometer unit to test moisture in the atmosphere. Fred C. Powell, technologist, is setting up the equipment and will be here for sometime during the tests. The four high volume samplers have been set up at the water pump station in west Coleman which is the base station, on the town's Public Works building roof, on the arena roof and at the sewage lift station east of Coleman. The dust, high volume samplers are electrically operated and have a small suction motor that draws air through a paper type filter. The filters are removed every 24 hours and sent away where tests made on the material caught by the filter show the amount of dust that falls on an area of one square mile. It also shows the type of particulate that is falling on the area. Mr. Powell said that at least 14 days of high volume sampling will be done so as to get a fair reading in the area. He said the damp rainy weather in the 'Pass at the present time would have a tendency to show low dust particulate readings. The tests are being done as the result of requests from the town of Coleman and citizens groups who have been complaining of dust pollution from the local mine yards and coal cleaning plants. Coleman Collieries Ltd. is daily watering the roads used by its coal haul trucks, sprinkler systems are being installed on and around coal storage piles, dust fences similar to snow fences to break wind are being built, a paving program for roads in and around the cleaning plant is being planned and the Collieries is working on a solution to lessen dust emission from the coal cleaning plant.
