Y2K Compliance: Air Monitoring System

The Department of Environmental Conservation uses the Air Monitoring System to collect and report air quality data. We reviewed the actions taken by the Department in attempting to ensure that activities dependent on this automated system are not significantly disrupted because of data processing difficulties related to the year 2000. We found the Department is taking many of the actions needed to prevent such difficulties. However, certain aspects of system testing are not scheduled to begin until August 1999, which may not allow the Department enough time to resolve any unforeseen difficulties.
