    Abstract The purpose of the Petone - Seaview Ambient Air Quality Monitoring
    Strategy is to provide information on the state of background air quality in
    the Petone/Seaview area. The strategy should provide information about
    the effects on air quality from the large number of industrial activities in the
    area.

    Since 1997 the Regional Council has undertaken a series of screening
    investigations of air quality and various climatological aspects that
    influence air pollution meteorology within the Wellington Region.
    Additionally, an emissions inventory of discharges to air has been
    completed and reported on. The Council has developed, and is in the
    process of implementing an ambient air quality monitoring strategy for
    2000-2005 (Wellington Regional Air Quality Monitoring Strategy 2000-
    2005, Resource Investigations Technical Publication WRC/RINV-T-
    00-20 June 2000).

    The strategy focuses on key air quality management issues and the task
    of establishing permanent air quality monitoring stations around the
    Region. The aim of the strategy is to gather information on general air
    quality on which future air quality management decisions will be based
    and to check compliance with air quality guidelines.

    The Wellington Regional Air Quality Monitoring Strategy 2000-2005 does
    not however, include targeted monitoring of emission sources or groups
    of sources, such as those that occur in parts of Petone and Seaview. The
    Petone/Seaview area is composed largely of light to heavy industrial
    activities with a numerous emissions to air and also contains the highest
    density of air discharge permits in the Wellington Region.
