Ambient Air Monitoring & Surveillance operates and maintains an ambient air-monitoring network that measures the level of pollution caused by six federally designated major air contaminants.  The network includes 7 stations located in or near the city, monitoring for the criteria pollutants of ozone, carbon monoxide, nitrogen compounds, sulfur compounds, particulate matter, and lead.  Data gained is used to determine compliance with current state and federal ambient air standards,  and for developing State Implementation Plan modeling.  This Team also operates and maintains a network of sites that monitor for five biological pollutants associated with terrorist activities for the Department of Homeland Security and the US Environmental Protection Agency.
