The black smoke that may be seen is diesel exhaust resulting from increasing engine rate or power and engine load. As more pumps are brought online more exhaust is visible. Pumps are brought up to the necessary operating rate individually and will release exhaust until the desired rate is achieved. 

The City and County of Broomfield continues to monitor air quality in the area as well as perform site inspections at the Interchange B Pad.
