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.

The plan, posted on the Bureau's Stakeholder Involvement webpage, and comments will be submitted to EPA after a 30 day review period. The Air Quality Bureau must receive all public comments by June 27, 2016. Written comments may be sent by regular mail to:
