Air Monitoring Program
We perform ambient air monitoring for planning and regulatory purposes. Federal regulations require state and local agencies that conduct ambient air monitoring to use specidic federal reference analyzers, to meet specific siting criteria, and to certify data quality to meet the federal regulatory requirements of 40CFR Part58.
The District has three particulate matter (PM-10) sites located in Healdsburg, Cloverdale, and Guerneville. Specific information regarding the monitoring sites is included in the state’s Annual Network Monitoring Report, which is reviewed annually by the District and the California Air Resource Board, and approved by EPA.
