A revised 2013 Air Monitoring Network Plan is available for public review and comment
Posted: 05/31/2013

The air monitoring network plan 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 monitor in Iowa’s air monitoring network that produces data for comparison with national ambient air quality standards.

Errors in the lead emissions estimates were noted in the network plan posted on 5/30/13. The revised plan contains the corrected lead emissions estimates.

The plan and comments will be submitted to EPA after a 30 day review period.

The Air Quality Bureau must receive all public comments by July 1, 2013.
