Title: Meteorology Tower Site Inspections

Abstract

This Environmental Protection and Compliance Division (EPC) Compliance Programs Group (CP) procedure describes the routine inspection of meteorology monitoring sites and equipment required to assure representative monitoring of meteorological conditions. Annual site inspection is recommended by ANSI/ANS-3.11-2005 (ANS 2010) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA; EPA 1999) for conformance to siting requirements. Trees and shrubs can grow over time to impact measurements. More frequent inspection is recommended by EPA (EPA 1999) and based on EPC-CP operating experience to identify signs of instrument or tower damage and wear and to perform routine cleaning of selected instruments.
