A major industrial facility in The Bahamas was the subject of an air
quality emission complaint from the neighborhood. To evaluate
the source and levels of air quality emissions, the facility retained
EIC to develop a fence-line air monitoring (FAM) systems.
purpose of the FAM was to establish an early warning system of
potential air emission hazards from both on-site or off-site sources.
Based on the site background information, EIC developed and
implemented a FAM system using wireless monitors that transmit
continuous monitoring data to a remote host. The system consisted of
eight stations that transmit the monitoring data to a remote host
computer via radio frequency (RF) transmission. Additional stations
(for up to a total of 32 remote stations) can be added or the
prevailing stations can be moved to suit the needs of the VTB.
Currently, EIC is developing a meteorological station to augment the
