Each year, states are required to submit an annual monitoring network plan to EPA. The plans provide for the creation and maintenance of monitoring stations, in accordance with EPA monitoring requirements specified in 40 CFR Part 58.
- if the existing network meets the monitoring objectives defined in Appendix D of 40 CFR Part 58;
- whether new sites are needed;
- whether existing sites are no longer needed and can be terminated; and
- whether new technologies are appropriate for incorporation into the ambient air monitoring network.
For PM2.5 (particulate less than 2.5 micrometers in diameter), the assessment also must identify needed changes to population-oriented sites. The first five-year assessment was due to EPA by July 1, 2010, and each assessment thereafter will be due in five-year increments.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
