Annual Public Comment Solicitation
The USEPA requires state and local air pollution agencies to make the annual Monitoring Network Design plans available to the general public for a 30 day public comment period. Agencies are required to submit their annual plans to EPA by July 1. The Ambient Monitoring Program solicits such comments from the public in late May and early June each year.

Assessments of the monitoring network and the anticipated changes that will be needed between 2011 and 2015 are described in the 2010 monitoring network assessments. The State program and local program assessments are provided here. The Western NC (Buncombe County) program assessment is included within the state agency's assessment.
