Sulfur Dioxide (SO2)* Data 
   In 2010, EPA set a new one-hour sulfur dioxide standard of 75 parts per billion and introduced a new form
for determining design value and, thus,
compliance. The new form requires three years of data —
the average SO2 concentrations from each hour. The department and EPA calculate the design value,
using the
the 99th percentile of daily maximum one-hour average concentrations, averaged over three years.

Lead (Pb) Data*

In 2008, the EPA tightened the standard for airborne lead to 0.15 micrograms
per cubic meter, calculated as three-month rolling averages. EPA required states
to install and operate source-oriented monitors, particularly near sources
that annually emit more than one ton of lead emissions. Missouri operates 13 sites
that monitor lead.
