Address: Sagamore Junior High School
57 Division Street
Holtsville, NY 11742

AQS Number: 36-103-0009
DEC Number: 5151-10
New York State County: Suffolk
Statistical Area: New York City Metropolitan Area
Coordinates: 40.82799 N -73.05754 W

The Holtsville air monitoring station was established by the Suffolk County Department of Health Services - Division of Environmental Quality in the late 1990s. The Department established an ozone analyzer at the site during the 2006 ozone season. In June of 2010 the Department took over control of the site, following personnel changes in the Suffolk County Department of Health Services. The Department expanded its monitoring by added sulfur dioxide and fine particulate matter.

The parameters monitored and certified by NYS DEC are indicated in the following table:

The IS143 site was established in 2000 as a continuous fine particulate (PM2.5) monitoring site. The site utilizes a R&P Tapered Element Oscillating Microbalance (TEOM). This site is located in an urbanized, residential area of Manhattan. Data from this site are reported to AIRNow.

The parameters monitored are indicated in the following table:

This site was established in 1999 as a replacement site for Public School 155. Initially the site contained ozone, oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, continuous PM2.5 and continuous PM10. Following an upgrade of the electricity, additional monitoring parameters were added, creating one of the premier particulate sampling sites in New York City. The site contains criteria pollutant parameters and
Methods along with many experimental
Methods.

This site has been temporarily shut down in June 2010 due to extensive construction at the school. The monitoring for NATTS parameters was moved to Morrisania II during that period. This site is now back to full operation.
