The New Bloomfield air monitor lies downwind of the Jefferson City metropolitan statistical area to help determine exposure of a population segment to ground-level ozone and to monitor attainment of the federal ambient air quality standards. In 2009, when the department began monitoring ground-level ozone in New Bloomfield, it also began monitoring the pollutant in three other outstate areas: Alba, Finger Lakes and Savannah. 


Ozone Pollutant

The primary National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone is 0.070 parts per million averaged over eight hours (annual fourth-highest daily maximum 8-hour concentration, averaged over three years). The federal ozone season for monitoring runs from March 1 to Oct. 31.
