DAR-1 AGC/SGC Tables and Software Support Files

DAR-1 AGC/SGC Tables
File Name Description
(PDF, 815 KB, 45 pgs)
To satisfy the requirements described in 6 NYCRR Part 212.9(a) Table 1, the Department established a listing of non-criteria air contaminants with acceptable ambient air concentrations to help the user of DAR-1 make an appropriate Environmental Rating determination. The acceptable air concentrations, in micrograms per cubic meter, are listed for annual emission rates called Annual Guideline Concentrations (AGC) and for hourly emission rates called Short-Term Guideline Concentrations (SGC). A listing of AGC/SGCs were incorporated into the 1991 Draft version of Air Guide-1 (DAR-1) under Appendix C and revised in 1995, 2000, 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2014.
