UPDATE: This blog was updated at 5:40 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 23 to reflect new information from the Allegheny County Health Department.
A brand new PM2.5 monitor was installed at Allegheny County Health Department’s Lawrenceville air quality monitoring site Wednesday, Dec. 23, an ACHD spokesman confirmed.
The monitor had been taken offline Dec. 16 because of “erratic data” being reported.
An ACHD spokesman said that data from the monitor is now appearing on AirNow.gov, but it doesn’t come up as of yet on the health department’s dashboard.
“The health department is working to resolve that issue and hopes to do it by next week,” ACHD Communications Lead Aaron Aupperlee said in an email Wednesday.
