Air Quality Index

The Air Quality Index is a color-coded tool that categorizes air quality. The map below shows the location of DEQ air quality monitoring stations throughout Oregon. Select a station near you by clicking on one of the colored dots.

At-a-Glance
The dots on the map change color depending on the current air quality health level at each station. You can quickly assess statewide air quality based on the color of the dots. The meaning of the colors can be found below the map.

Note: AQI map currently works best with Chrome or Firefox browsers. The map might take extra time to load for mobile users.

Sept. 5, 2017:
Due to high web traffic the AQI map may not load. Retry loading or go to the http://oregonsmoke.blogspot.com/ for another air quality map.

The ozone monitors have been removed from the AQI during the forest fire impacts because they report good while the air may be unhealthy for PM2.5.

AQI Station Map Notes:
  • The data displayed are the most current available.
  • All readings are preliminary and unvalidated. Following final review, all values are subject to change.
  • New AQI readings will be available at approximately 15-20 minutes past the hour. The AQI map will refresh asynchronously at this time.
  • The units ppm and µg/m3 stand for parts per million and micrograms per cubic meter, respectively. Both are used in the measurement of air pollutant concentration.
