How do I add a new forecast city or reporting area to AirNow?

Email with the following information for each new forecast city or reporting area:

  • Name of the forecast city or reporting area.
  • Central coordinates (latitude and longitude) that are representative of the forecast area. The coordinates of a centrally located monitoring site can often be used.
  • Monitoring sites to be assigned as verification sites to the reporting area
  • Zip codes that correspond to this reporting area
  • If forecasts will be issued, will they be issued year-round or seasonally?
  • Is there an air quality action day program? If yes, what is the name of the program?

After creation,the AirNow Data Management center will be in contact with the requesting agency to verify the new additions.
