Wood Buffalo Environmental Association Human Exposure Monitoring Program : 2006 monitoring year results

Description

This report summarizes the results of the second year of an ongoing community exposure and health effects assessment program undertaken in the Wood Buffalo region of north eastern Alberta. While the Wood Buffalo region enjoys good air quality most of the time, increased industrial activity and subsequent population growth has raised people's awareness about air quality and quality of life in the region. In response to this, the Wood Buffalo Environmental Association (WBEA) has established a Human Exposure Monitoring Program (HEMP) in the Wood Buffalo region. Supported by scientific and technical assistance from Alberta Health and Wellness, the monitoring results for 2006 are presented in this report.
