The board will display parameters of noise pollution, the level of nitrogen dioxide and carbon monoxide in the air, the water quality of rivers and canals across the city.

So far, the monitoring results have been posted in the department’s website but very a few people get access to it therefore new method is expected to be an effective measure to get locals’ ideas about environmental issues, and related agencies can have reflects about hotspots of environmental pollution in the city.

Reports showed that pollution of air and water from 2011 to now had exceeded the limit and pollution caused by vehicle exhausts is always higher than others.
