Assessment Topic

This document provides cost estimates for collecting and analyzing ambient air samples for the criteria air pollutants and selected toxic air pollutants. Both capital costs and operating costs are developed based on 1984 equipment manufacturers' costs and on assumed labor categories and pay scales. Costs for visibility monitoring and for monitoring meteorological parameters are included. Costs are developed for an example monitoring network to illustrate the application of costs for individual monitoring network components. Data presented can be used for cost estimating. Actual costs will differ depending on local conditions such as labor cost differentials, network configuration, and sampling and analysis methods.
May be superceded by A.93.39.
