Air Toxics Monitoring Plan for the Denver Metropolitan Area—Integrated Environmental Management Project


The air toxics monitoring plan for the metropolitan Denver Integrated Environmental Management Project (IEMP) sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) describes the monitoring program to be used during the project to collect data on ambient levels of toxic compounds in the air. The plan describes the objectives, monitoring approach, and sampling methods and analyses of the program. Aspects of the analyses described in the plan include the determination of the exposure of the population to the toxic concentrations found during the monitoring program and the apportionment of these toxic compounds to sources in the metropolitan area. The data to be collected will be of value not only in Denver, where a comprehensive air toxic database will be completed, but to the ongoing national effort by EPA to assess the magnitude of the air toxics problem in urban areas.
