Release Notes for AQS April, 16, 2020

For PM 2.5 sites where there no data for one or more quarters, the Design Value Report, AMP480, will provide the correct validity for the Annual Design Value if the default option to use Linked Sites remains selected. However, if the user changes the option, and selects to not use Linked Sites, the Annual DV validity indicator may be incorrect. (This will be fixed in a later release.)
