On February 9, 2010, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated new minimum monitoring requirements for the nitrogen dioxide (NO2) monitoring network in support of a newly revised 1-hour NO2 National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and the retained annual NAAQS. In the new monitoring requirements, state and local air monitoring agencies are required to install near-road NO2 monitoring stations at locations where peak hourly NO2 concentrations are expected to occur within the near-road environment in larger urban areas. State and local air agencies are required to consider traffic volumes, fleet mix, roadway design, traffic congestion patterns, local terrain or topography, and meteorology in determining where a required near-road NO2 monitor should be placed. In addition, there are other factors that affect the selection and implementation of a near-road monitoring station, including satisfying siting criteria, favorable site logistics (e.g., gaining access to property and safety), and consideration of population exposure. The purpose of this Near-Road NO2 Monitoring Technical Assistance Document (TAD) is to provide state and local air monitoring agencies with recommendations and ideas on how to successfully implement near-road NO2 monitors required by the 2010 revisions to the NO2 minimum monitoring requirements.

Contents Notes
"This document is the June 2012 release of the Near-Road NOb2s Monitoring Technical Assistance Document (TAD). The TAD was developed to aid state and local air monitoring agencies in the implementation of required near-road NOb2s monitoring stations. The TAD reflects the collaboration between partner state and local air monitoring agencies and associations, partnering state departments of transportation, the Federal Highways Administration, and the EPA. This document also reflects feedback, concepts, and suggestions from two reviews conducted by the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) Ambient Monitoring and Methods Subcommittee (AMMS)."--Preface.
