We are quickly approaching what is commonly known as "ozone season" in the US. This is the time of year where agencies shift into high gear of monitor, record and report the levels of ozone as well as other pollutants.
Many of our customers have been getting their ambient monitor calibration systems calibrated and tuned-up to be ready to begin the season. If you still need your system serviced for this ozone season, please let us know ASAP as the calendar is filling fast!
Check out this post from last year regarding the EPA’s new ozone reporting site. It’s a great way to check the conditions in your area.
On June 30, 2013, the US Environmental Protection Agency released a revision to the Air Emissions Reporting Rule (AERR). The rule states the goal of the revisions is to "reduce reporting burden for state, local and tribal agencies, improve consistency and clarity with other rules, and better reflect current inventory technologies and practices."
The AERR was first published in 2008 as a replacement to the previous Consolidated Emissions Reporting Rule (CERR), which was published in 2002. Both regulations were created to improve the ability of the EPA to gather emissions data on a national level. The data is used to create a national inventory of air pollutant emissions. You can see this data in use and search for the conditions in your area at the EPA's MY Environment.
The improved AERR aims to grant states more flexibility on how to collect and report this emissions data. These increased permissions give the state programs the ability to operate more efficiently. To find out more visit the EPA's AERR page.

Every year, we ask our customers for their feedback throughout the year as well as on our annual Continuous Improvement Survey. We take this input very seriously, discussing the thoughts and suggestions and, when possible, implementing the requests that are made. One recurring suggestion was the availability of a Service Agreement for Recalibration of our systems. (You can learn more about our Calibration Services here.)
After many internal discussions, we are proud to announce the availability of Service Agreements on both new and existing systems. By having a Service Agreement with us, you will save both time and money. We are happy to help customize your agreement to fit your needs.
The benefits of signing a Service Agreement are:
You will lock in the current recalibration cost for the length of your agreement.
Your system will be given priority status when it arrives for recalibration. This means less downtime for you!
Your will receive a 5% discount on your recalibration cost by prepaying a One-Year Agreement or by signing a Two to Five Year Service Agreement (prepayment not required). This discount is on top of the savings you receive by locking in the current recalibration rates.
To learn more or to request a Service Agreement for an existing system, please contact us at (860) 872-1111 or complete an online request.
