Ventura County, CA (June 20, 2013) – The Ventura County Air Pollution Control District (VCAPCD) has released its Draft 2013 Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan for public review and comment. Federal regulations require all air districts to prepare an annual plan describing the network of ambient air quality monitors and monitoring stations and identify needs for additions, relocations, or terminations of monitoring stations or instrumentation. The VCAPCD’s draft plan describes its network of air quality monitoring stations, and includes a review of actions taken during 2012-2013 and pending modifications in the year ahead. Pending modifications include changes to the method we use to monitor ambient levels of particulates. Reductions in the monitoring network will need to be approved by EPA; no monitors will be removed from service until EPA has given approval.

 

The monitoring plan will be submitted to the U.S. EPA on July 30, 2013. Written comments from the public will be accepted until July 29, 2013. All comments will be forwarded to the U.S. EPA.

 

The VCAPCD’s monitoring plan is available on its website at www.vcapcd.org. Copies of the Plan are available at the Ventura County APCD office, 669 County Square Drive, 2nd floor, Ventura, CA 93003. If you have questions about the plan, contact Kent Field at kent@vcapcd.org, or 805-662-6960.
