Three Month Delay: No Air Quality Sensors at Yerevan Construction Sites

Air quality monitoring equipment at Yerevan construction sites has yet to be installed three and a half months after the city’s municipal council issued a directive to do so on September 1.

The monitors were to be installed at construction sites deemed “high risk” for air quality infractions.

Yakov Asatryan, who heads the municipality’s Urban Construction and Land Use Inspectorate, says the equipment has yet to be obtained.

The Yerevan Municipality acquired similar air monitoring devices last year.

Five sensors were installed in the Armenian capital to assess the environmental risks of new transport routes. However, only three device indicators are currently available on an air quality monitoring map designed by the Clarity company.

According to Gorik Avetisyan, the chief ecologist at the Department of Environmental Protection, there’s a “technical problem” that needs to be fixed.
