The common operation of fuel-powered resurfacing equipment in enclosed ice skating rinks has the potential for producing high concentrations of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.
Exposures to these gaseous combustion products may adversely affect the health of those inside the rink.
Little information is available on pollutant concentrations under normal operating conditions.
One-week average nitrogen dioxide concentrations in 70 northeastern US rinks were measured with passive samplers during normal winter season conditions.
