The goals of the Air Monitoring Program are: to determine compliance with the ambient air quality standards; provide real-time monitoring of air quality; provide data for trend analyses, regulation evaluation and planning; and provide daily information to the public concerning the quality of the air in high-population areas, near major emission sources and in rural areas. For more detail about what we do, please explore the options below.

Availability of Draft for Comment – Draft Letter Request for Discontinuation of SO2 Monitoring Sites in Steubenville, OH-WV Area
July 21, 2020: Ohio EPA is requesting that USEPA approve a change to Ohio’s air monitoring program in the Steubenville, OH-WV area. Specifically, Ohio EPA is requesting to discontinue the Cardinal Power Plant monitors due to the consistently low SO2 values over the last five years: Cardinal Brilliant (39-081-0018), Self Storage (39-081-0020) and Trailer Sales (54-009-6000). Ohio EPA will continue to exceed the minimum SO2 monitoring requirements upon discontinuation of these monitors and continue to provide an appropriate and adequate network for monitoring ongoing maintenance in the Steubenville, OH-WV maintenance area. Additional details can be found in the draft request.
Ohio EPA will accept comments on this draft request through Monday, August 24, 2020. Please submit your comments via email to email@example.com or by mail to:
