2013 Monitoring Network Plan

New York State Ambient Air Monitoring Program

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC), Division of Air Resources operates an ambient air monitoring network for various air contaminants within the State. As required by federal regulations, NYSDEC prepares an annual monitoring network plan, which describes in detail the specifics of the monitoring network. This plan includes an annual review of the existing monitoring network to determine the adequacy of the network and to propose any network modifications. The 2013 plan was provided here for public review. One comment was submitted and addressed during the 30-day comment period. This plan was approved by EPA Region 2 on September 5, 2013.

In the published Network Plan, it stated that DEC and EPA Region 2 would be working closely together to establish the requisite near-road sites for NO2 monitoring. A site in Buffalo between Exits 51 and 52 on I90 was identified and approved by EPA. Full site operation is expected by the second quarter of 2014. Details are provided in the Addendum to the Network Plan.
