Address: Granby Community Center
820 County Route 8
Fulton, NY 13069

AQS Number: 36-075-0003
DEC Number: 3754-01
County: Oswego
Statistical Area: Syracuse, NY
Coordinates: Lat: 43.28428 Lon: -76.46324

The Fulton site was initiated on October 3, 2002 to measure the Ozone downwind of the Rochester area. Fulton is a seasonal automated ozone site, requiring minimal operator attention. The location in the Granby Community Center offers easy and secure access for DEC staff to perform site maintenance.

Address: 300 Albany Shaker Road
Albany, NY 12211

AQS Number: 36-001-0012
DEC Number: 0101-33
County: Albany
Statistical Area: Albany-Schenectady-Troy
Coordinates: Lat: 42.68075 Lon: -73.75733

This site was established in 1986 as a neighborhood scale, population exposure site. The site was expanded as part of the NYSDEC Acid Deposition Network. It is located in suburban Albany, in close proximity to Interstate 90. Ozone readings are reported to AIRNow and it is the only ozone monitor in Albany County. PM2.5 sampling was added in January 2008.

The parameters monitored are indicated in the following table:

Address: Middleport Sewage Treatment Plant
3825 North Hartland Road
Middleport, NY 14105

AQS Number: 36-063-1006
DEC Number: 3120-02
County: Niagara
Statistical Area: Buffalo - Niagara Falls, NY
Coordinates: Lat: 43.22386 Lon: -78.47888

This site was established in 1980 as a Buffalo downwind site. Middleport is a seasonal ozone site, operating between April and November. It is located on land adjacent to the Middleport Sewage Treatment Plant in a rural and largely agricultural area. Ozone is measured for regional transport from Buffalo and points west.

The parameters monitored are indicated in the following table:

Millbrook, NY 12545

AQS Number: 36-027-0007
DEC Number: 1328-01
County: Dutchess
Statistical Area: Dutchess County, NY
Coordinates: Lat: 41.78555 Lon: -73.74136

This site was established in 1990 as a replacement for the site in the city of Poughkeepsie. The site was suggested by researchers at the Institute of Ecosystem Studies when they suspected that the ozone values in the rural and agricultural area might be higher than those of the high traffic city monitor. The site is shared by the scientists at IES, and researchers there value the data. Ozone readings are reported to AIRNow. Sulfur dioxide measurements were added in June, 2011.

The parameters monitored are indicated in the following table:

AQS Number: 36-071-0002
DEC Number: 3502-04
County: Orange
Statistical Area: New York, NY
Coordinates: Lat: 41.49916 Lon: -74.00885

Newburgh was established in 2000 as part of the NYS PM2.5 FRM network. It currently has both a 1 in 3 day FRM and continuous R&P 1400 TEOM. This site has been used to calculate the "FRM Like" values that are reported to the AIRNow system for the TEOMs in New York City, Albany, Newburgh and Utica.
