The Department of Environmental Quality today released Michigan’s annual ambient air monitoring Network Review document.
The Network Review document, now out for public comment, is the principle tool used by DEQ Air Quality Division staff to plan ambient air quality monitoring activities.
The report stems from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency revisions to ambient air monitoring rules. It examines Michigan’s ambient air monitoring network in operation during 2010-2011 and recommends changes based on monitor history, population distribution, and modifications to federal monitoring requirements under the Clean Air Act.
The 2012 Network Review document is available on the DEQ website, www.michigan.gov/deqair. Public comment is accepted until 5:00 p.m., June 24, 2011. Feedback received by the DEQ will be reviewed with respect to ambient air monitoring activities to be carried out in 2011.
Comments may be submitted electronically to email@example.com, or by U.S. mail to Dr. Mary Ann Heindorf, DEQ-Air Quality Division, P.O. Box 30260, Lansing, MI. 48909.
