This project was implemented from Jan. 1, 2019 to Dec. 31, 2019. All tasks defined in the Environmental Protection Bureau's contract had been completed including the sampling analysis, maintenance of the manual operation air monitoring stations, regular maintenance of auto air monitoring stations, operation and maintenance of mobile air quality monitoring station, operation and maintenance of VOCs monitoring van, regular maintenance of electronic billboard, calibration and maintenance of fixed noise monitoring stations, noise monitoring of mobile noise stations, submit all kinds of reports, training, air quality routine notification, air sensor monitoring data tracking, et cetera.
In the section of Manual Operation Air Monitoring Stations, there were monthly sampling, analysis of dust fall, monthly one-point flow rate calibration, every half months TSP sampling analysis and maintenance, quarterly multiple-points flow rate calibration. All equipment in Manual Operation Air Monitoring Stations are in good conditions. In contrast with year 2018, the average concentration of TSP in year 2019 was higher than year 2018. The TSP concentration between 7～210μg/m3 was meant that all stations meet the Environmental Protection Administration air quality standard as 250μg/m3 in 2019. The concentration of TSP in winter was higher than in summer. There was a declining trend for long term as TSP, nitrate and sulfate have higher proportions of TSP's ingredients. The dust fall in Taichung City in 2019 was equally 2.74 ton/square kilometer/month, the graduation was extremely slightly pollution and higher comparing to last year as 2.14 ton/square kilometer/month.
In the section of Auto Monitoring Stations, all measurement items were functioning well under weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual and annual maintenance scheme. The data achieved above 93% of capture rate.
In automatic air quality station, the data was affected between day and night. CO and NO2 were affected by mobile sources of pollution of higher concentration during commuting time, particularly Dali and Zhongming station was obvious; O3 was the result of photochemical at noon time with higher concentration in Dali and Daiping station. In terms of seasonal changing, most pollutants in summer have lower concentration, higher in winter and spring; its causes by typical weather patterns in Taiwan such as Typhoons in summer, strong heat convection, good diffusion conditions so the pollutants is not easy for accumulation. The values of O3 were between Mar. to Apr. (spring) and from Sep. to Oct. (autumn) was higher to showing a typical seasonal variation.
In automatic station with measured value of long-term trends, performing a variety of controlled measurement over the years, so SO2 concentration was lower in recent years. NO2 concentration in Zhongming, Dali, and Wuri station were higher due to mobile sources of pollution; the long-term trend was roughly rendered decline. Most stations of O3 concentration were roughly slight rise from 2016 to 2018. PM10 concentrations were showing a slight downward in long-term trend so it meant that efforts over the years for particle control has the achievement. PM2.5 trend is similar to the PM10 in long-term trend that showed a slight downward.
In 2019, the ratio with poor air quality (AQI>100) in Fengyuan, Shalu, Dali, Zhongming and Xitun revealing monitoring data from Taiwan Environmental Protection Administration report. The monitoring data is 11.8% in Taichung City from Jan. to Dec. .Among Central Air Quality Zone, the higher one was Nantou County standing for 20.9%, followed by Taichung City (11.8%)and Changhua County (10.2%). Among Shan, Hai, Tun, and Shih, four districts of Taichung City; Shih district had the highest ratio with AQI>100（11.5％）, followed by Tun (10.0%) , Shan (10.0%) and Hai (9.5%).
In the mobile air quality monitoring van, monitoring regularly the implementation of equipment maintenance; air quality monitoring was based on public petitions and EPP instruction. It has been completed 17 monitoring until end of Dec.. After monitoring is complete, in addition to submitting the monitoring data and conducting for monitoring data analysis, aggregated monitoring locations near sources may provide reference implementation of audit. Monthly monitoring data of the van was achieved more than 90% of capture rate in line with the contract requirements. Mobile air quality monitoring van not only implement air quality monitoring, but also assist the relevant units of the sample collection for total 18 analysis.
In the section of Noise Monitoring, the regular calibration and maintenance of Fixed Noise Monitoring Stations were completed according to the contract. The calibration report and monitoring data were submitted monthly and the data validity was above 93%. In the section of the Noise Monitoring of Mobile Noise Stations, that took twice quarterly monitoring tests at each spot, and according to predetermined progress execution. The measured value of traffic noise monitoring station is relatively stable, and is greatly affected by traffic flow. The environmental volume station is subject to stricter control standards, and the measured value is easily affected by natural or human activities, and occasionally some cases may fail. In the section of the Software Operation/Maintenance and Data Update, updating the database of the Noise Control Information System quarterly.
