Ozone (O3) Data*

The federal ozone season for monitoring runs from Mar. 1 to Oct. 31.

As of 2015, the federal standard for ozone is 70 parts per billion, or .070 parts per million. An area is in
compliance if the design value is at or below the standard. A design value for ozone
incorporates data from three years. The department and EPA calculate the design value by
1) ranking the daily eight-hour ozone values for three consecutive years; 2) extracting the fourth-highest
value for each year; and 3) averaging the three figures.
