About Us - Technical Services Program

Technical Services is responsible for the collection and analysis of air quality data throughout the state. Particulate and gaseous air monitors are distributed in most Colorado communities to track air quality trends and compliance with air quality standards. The program is also responsible for providing modeling analyses to determine the impacts various sources will have on air quality. Models are also used to create and evaluate control plan strategies and to provide a basis for health risk assessments.
