Proposal for a New Near Road Nitrogen Dioxide Monitor
Iowa’s Proposal for a New Near Road Nitrogen Dioxide Monitor is available for public review and comment.
The network plan outlining the new near road nitrogen dioxide (NO2) site will assist the Iowa DNR in its efforts to monitor the quality of Iowa’s air and to keep the public aware of air quality problems. The plan is required by EPA’s national ambient air monitoring regulations. It contains detailed information about the location and purpose of any NO2 monitor in Iowa’s air monitoring network that produces data for comparison with national ambient air quality standards.
The plan and comments will be submitted to EPA after a 30 day review period.
The Proposal for a New Near Road Nitrogen Dioxide Monitor is available by clicking here or on our Public Input page which at www.iowadnr.gov, click on Inside DNR, Regulatory-Air, Rules & Planning, Public Input.
