City of Philadelphia's Ambient Air Monitoring Network Plan Available for Public Comment
[38 Pa.B. 2535]
[Saturday, May 31, 2008]
Under 40 CFR Part 58 (relating to ambient air quality surveillance) requires State and local air pollution control agencies to adopt and submit to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Regional Administrator an Annual Monitoring Network Plan (AMNP) on July 1, 2008. The AMNP provides for the establishment and maintenance of an air quality surveillance system that consists of a network of monitoring stations. A proposed AMNP must be made available for public inspection for at least 30 days prior to submission to EPA. The EPA will also provide an opportunity for review and comment prior to approving or disapproving a Monitoring Network Plan submitted by a state and local air pollution control agency.
Air Management Services is the local air pollution control agency for the City of Philadelphia under the Department of Public Health. Philadelphia has an air monitoring network of 12 air monitoring stations that house instruments that measure ambient levels of air pollutants.
The proposed AMNP is available for public inspection on the City's web site at www.phila.gov/health/units/ams/index.html and at the office of Air Management Services, 321 University Avenue, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104, during normal business hours. For further information, contact Henry Kim, Chief of Program Services at (215) 685-9437.
Written comments on the proposed AMNP should be sent to Henry Kim, Chief of Program Services, Air Management Services, 321 University Avenue, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19104 or by e-mail to henry.kim@ phila.gov. Only written comments will be accepted. Comments received by facsimile will not be accepted. Persons wishing to file comments on the proposed AMNP must submit comments by June 30, 2008.
