Previous Air Monitoring Network Plans

Network plans are filed by the year they were submitted. The actual document titles for the network plans previous to the 2015 plan reflect the year for which the plan was written. Since EPA uses the calendar year of submission for all their correspondence, DEC changed its process in 2015 to establish consistency with the EPA naming convention.
