Ambient air monitoring guidelines are described for sources that may be required to monitor the air quality under the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) regulations. Some step-by-step discussion is presented for a source to determine if monitoring will be necessary. Situations where existing air quality and meteorological data, modeling, and use of assumed background concentrations for certain areas may be used in lieu of monitoring, are shown. If a source must undertake a monitoring program, general guidance is given for pollutants to be monitored, number and location of monitoring sites, equipment, frequency and duration of sampling, and data reporting. More detailed guidance is discussed for air quality monitoring probe citing criteria for various pollutants, meteorological monitoring, and quality assurance procedures.
