Timaru residents breathing badly polluted with air pollution regime imminent

Timaru 17 june 16

Eds note: As we reported in the blog: Timaru’s Air Monitoring Stations Picking Up More Than Smoke From Wood Burners As Photos Show, the mainstream media is not acknowledging all sources of pollution, one of which is the heavy metal aerosol particulates, which  are being picked up in rainwater tests.

For 17 days so far this winter, Timaru’s air has been badly polluted.

The South Canterbury town has a population of around 28,500. On the most polluted days they’re having to breath air that can make them unwell and even cause people to die earlier than they otherwise would.

And the pressure is on.

Smoke from household fires is a major cause of air pollution in some parts of New Zealand.

In a few months’ time Timaru’s air quality is supposed to be much better. It, and a dozen other areas with the country’s worst pollution problems, are supposed to have no more than three high-pollution days a year from September 1. From spring 2020 the rules get even tougher, with only one high-pollution day allowed each year.
