Denver Monitoring Sites


Alsup Elementary School

7101 Birch St., Commerce City, CO

Alsup (ALS, COMM) is an industrial/residential site located northeast of downtown Denver in the suburb of Commerce City. Currently the site is being used for Liza's dust deposition study and is an EPA AQS Chemical Speciation Network site for PM2.5 in Denver (AQS Site ID: 080010006). The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment also houses multiple air pollution instruments at Alsup. The CCRUSH study utilized ALS as well, housing a TEOM 1405-DF, dichotomous filter sampler, and TSP high-volume filter sampler. The site is near I-76 and the CO-36/I-25/I-270 intersection and has multiple point sources nearby including a large refinery and gravel pit.



Edison Elementary School

3350 Quitman St., Denver, CO

Edison (EDI) is an urban background site west of downtown Denver near Federal Blvd (CO-287). The DASH and CCRUSH studies both utilized this site as a contrast to other Denver monitors influence heavily by traffic and industry.
