How do I report a monitoring configuration change to the EPA?
If your monitoring configuration changes, you must report the configuration changes to EPA through the Client Tool.
Typical configuration changes include combining units with a common stack, or separating units from a common stack. In the monitoring plan, a configuration change occurs when either a unit-stack record is added, or an end date is added to an existing unit-stack record.
These changes can be made by either importing the changes in the monitoring plan file, or by using the Add/Edit screens in the Monitoring Plan module of the Client Tool.
When a unit-stack record is added, or an end date is added to an existing unit-stack record, a new monitoring plan is generated in the Client Tool. This new monitoring plan contains all monitoring data associated with the monitoring locations that are part of the monitoring plan. For example, if a unit is added to a common stack configuration, all systems, components, formulas, etc., move with the unit to the new monitoring plan.
The original monitoring plan is marked as "Inactive" or "Becoming Inactive," depending on the relationship between the end date and the current date. The new monitoring plan is made the "Active" or "Future" monitoring plan for that unit(s).
The Client Tool's Submit module will indicate that both the old monitoring plan and the new monitoring plan need to be submitted to EPA. Once you've submitted the old monitoring plan, you will not need to submit it again.
