This document provides guidance to EPA Regional, State, and Tribal air quality management authorities and the general public, on how EPA intends to exercise its discretion in implementing Clean Air Act provisions and EPA regulations, concerning ambient air monitoring. The guidance is designed to implement national policy on these issues. Section 110 of the Clean Air Act (42 U.S.C. SC 7410) and implementing regulations at 40 CFR part 58 contain legally binding requirements. This document does not substitute for those provisions or regulations, nor is it a regulation itself. Thus, it does not impose binding, enforceable requirements on any party, nor does it assure that EPA may approve all instances of its application, and thus the guidance may not apply to a particular situation based upon the circumstances. EPA and State decision makers retain the discretion to adopt approaches on a case-by-case basis that differ from this guidance where appropriate. Any decisions by EPA regarding a particular State implementation plan (SIP) demonstration will only be made based on the statute and regulations, and will only be made following notice and opportunity for public review and comment. Therefore, interested parties are free to raise questions and objections about the appropriateness of the application of this guidance to a particular situation; EPA will, and States should, consider whether or not the recommendations in this guidance are appropriate in that situation. This guidance is a living document and may be revised periodically without public notice. EPA welcomes public comments on this document at any time and will consider those comments in any future revision of this guidance document.
