The Bloomington Ice Center monitors its air quality daily. We take carbon monoxide readings daily and record those readings. In addition to this, there are detection devices in the zamboni room to detect any high carbon monoxide readings when the zambonis are started. We have not seen any indication of an issue with the quality of our air in the facility.
