Monitoring studies of ambient CO concentrations in the vicinity of major league baseball stadiums in Pittsburgh and Atlanta were conducted for approximately 1 week in each location. Wind speed and direction were also recorded on the site. Traffic was monitored for 1-hour periods before and after games. Grab samples of CO were also obtained during the one hour periods before and after games. No violations of the 1-hour national ambient air quality standard for CO were observed. Highest concentration occurred immediately after the games. Traffic was observed to clear out within about 30 minutes after a game. Some of the data suggest that a less efficient system of traffic controls may result in violations of the 1-hour national ambient air quality standard in certain locations.
