An ambient air sampling program was designed and implemented to obtain information relative to the magnitude and spatial distribution of carbon monoxide levels in Spokane's central business district. Integrated bag samples were collected from a 16 site study network during 20 weekdays spanning November and December of 1980. Samples from each site were analyzed by the non-dispersive infrared method to yield a daily 8-hour average concentration for comparison with values reported by the four permanent monitors sited in the study area. The permanent monitoring network adequately represented the maximum carbon monoxide concentration reported from the study network, compared without respect to day of occurrence. On balance, the study results indicate that the carbon monoxide problem is areawide in the study portion of downtown Spokane, and is primarily the result of highly localized contributory factors. Further, the study established the potential efficacy of using data generated by the existing permanent monitoring network to characterize carbon monoxide levels at other locations in the central business district.
