Call off contract for Foot and Mouth Disease - AQ01006


Call Off contract for Foot and Mouth Monitoring

The work was to provide support as required to predict, monitor and assess the impact of foot and mouth pyres on air quality. Monitoring was carried out for a wide range of pollutants at two locations in Devon and preparations were made to monitor at other sites. Guidance was produced to advise MAFF on the materials not to use on pyres and on the siting of pyres to avoid exposure of the populations to concentrations in breach of air quality standards.
