Today, the air quality of a place is one of the most important indicators of social and economic development needed to ensure the standard of living and sustainability. Ataşehir Municipality has cooperated with Istanbul Technical University, Faculty of Meteorology Engineering Teaching Members for the current state of air pollution and improvement works. In the preliminary study, three main sources of pollution, heat, transportation and industry were found to exist in the region. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the pollution sources in the region and surrounding area and the complex topographic structure of the region, it is planned to carry out measurements at different locations at different times by establishing a mobile air quality station. In order to measure pollutants from three main sources of pollution, wind speed, direction, temperature, pressure and humidity measurement devices are installed beside the station PM10, PM2.5, NO, NO2, SO2, O3 and CO. These devices can be upgraded if needed. The measurement station that was commissioned on January 2016 was first established in the Küçükbakkalköy District, which is a part of the midpoint to obtain Ataşehir air pollution values, and test measurements were made. The station was placed in this area in the direction of the demands of the public in the Fatih district located within the borders of our municipality. In this study, the measurement results of 14 April 2 July 2017 were evaluated. A meeting was held in the neighborhood and the results of the measurements were presented to the people of the neighborhood. Action plans to increase air quality have been discussed. One of these action plans is to cover both sides of the roads with green and leafy plants in summer and winter, and to create to make less noise pollution and drain pollution.
