Editor's Note: On Nov. 9, ACHD extended the deadline for public comment through Dec. 1. This blog was updated to reflect the new deadline.
Allegheny County Health Department is now seeking public comment on its 2024 air quality network monitoring plan, an annual report that provides a detailed description of how and where air pollution is monitored in Allegheny County.
Air Monitoring Network Plans are required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and provide the specific location of each monitoring station, siting criteria, monitoring methods and objectives, frequency of sampling, pollutants measured at each station, and aerial photographs showing their physical locations.
The public comment period runs through Dec. 1.
Stay tuned, GASP will be providing analysis and more information on how - and why - residents should weigh in.
Until then, you can read the plan here.
