TCEQ 2015 Annual Monitoring Network Plan

The public is invited to comment on the 2015 Annual Monitoring Network Plan.

Under 40 Code of Federal Regulations §58.10, states are required to submit an annual monitoring network plan to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by July 1st of each year. This monitoring plan is required to provide the framework for establishment and maintenance of an air quality surveillance system, known commonly as the ambient air quality monitoring network. This document provides information on the Texas network of ambient air monitors established to meet regulatory requirements of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards and other monitors that support this effort. The annual monitoring network plan shall be made available for public inspection for at least 30 days prior to submission to the EPA. The plan and any comments received during the 30 day inspection period are forwarded to the EPA for final review and approval. This document presents the current Texas network, as well as proposed changes to the network from July 1, 2014, through December 31, 2016.
