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 prepared an annual monitoring network plan, which described in detail the specifics of the monitoring network. This plan included an annual review of the existing monitoring network to determine the adequacy of the network and any proposed network modifications. The annual monitoring network plan was approved by the EPA on December 2, 2015.
NYSDEC, with the EPA's approval, has closed the Camp Georgetown monitoring station in Madison County and the Scotchtown lead background monitoring site in Orange County. In addition, NYSDEC has added a permanent monitoring station in South Albany.
