Quesnel Airshed

The Quesnel Airshed refers to the mass of air contained in Quesnel and the immediate surrounding communities of the Cariboo Regional District, and particularly that air mass contained and affected by the natural topographical features at the confluence of the Quesnel and Fraser Rivers. The Ministry of Environment has defined this area on the map provided. These boundaries are not all encompassing as there will be times when meteorological conditions will transport pollutants from outside the airshed into the Quesnel area (e.g. smoke from forest fires).
