The NC Division of Air Quality (DAQ) operates the urban air toxics (UAT) monitoring network in conjunction with the national program, originally proposed and designed by the U.S. EPA in 1999. The UAT monitoring network was started in part due to the EPA's effort to address toxic air pollutant emissions in urban areas.

Currently, the UAT consist of 6 sites; 5 "urban" and 1 "rural". UAT air monitoring is regulary conducted for volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Monitoring for selected semi-volatile compounds (SVOCs) and aldehydes have been conducted on a more limited basis. At present monitoring is conducted for VOCs at 6 sites and aldehydes sampling at 2 sites. The UAT monitoring network is a collaborative effort conducted in coordination with state and local agencies:
