9/27/2010 - Pollen


‚ÄčIn November, 2010, as a result of the economic downturn and declining budgets, as well as the retirement of a long-term key aeroallergen monitoring technician, the Board of County Commissioners authorized the termination of the pollen monitoring program as a necessary cost-saving measure.  Although the program will undoubtedly be missed by some of our residents and medical professionals, the pollen monitoring program is not a required or mandated air quality program.  We have learned much about the seasonal aeroallergen patterns that occur in the Las Vegas Valley and surrounding areas in the past 25 years.  The following timeline and seasonal sampling information will be helpful to those desiring general information about the prevalent pollen patterns typically found in the area.  The American Academy of Allergy Asthma Immunology (AAAAI), together with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) are posting this information here:
