2015 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 proposed annual monitoring network plan must be available for public review for a 30 day period prior to submittal to EPA. This notice is intended to afford interested parties the opportunity to comment on the proposed plan.

NYSDEC has reviewed the current ambient air monitoring network and is proposing to close the Camp Georgetown monitoring station in Madison County, and the Scotchtown lead background monitoring site in Orange County. In addition, NYSDEC is proposing to add a permanent monitoring station in South Albany.

Written comments on this plan should be forwarded to the Department by June 19, 2015, and addressed to:
