This page last reviewed August 26, 2003
The 1998 California Particulate Matter Monitoring Network Description described the particulate matter monitoring strategy for California through July 1999 (by which time the 1999 update was completed). The 1998 Network Description was approved by the Regional Administrator of the U.S. EPA Region 9.
The 1998 California Particulate Matter Monitoring Network Description consisted of a statewide summary and 17 appendices. The statewide summary, assembled by the ARB, addresses major elements of the PM2.5 network. Separate appendices describe the proposed network for each Monitoring Planning Area (MPA) (except that the Coachella Valley MPA network description is included with the South Coast MPA network description.
The following map shows the agency responsible for developing the PM2.5 monitoring network plan for each MPA.
The statewide summary and MPA plans are available and can be downloaded from the list below.
