 Where is Buffalo?

2 days ago Buffalo's EPA Gamma site stopped posting data. I just checked Radnet, and Buffalo is not even listed anymore. I couldn't find any posted publications announcing this on Radnet. Is it being shut down?

Looking into this further, there is another Radnet Gamma air monitoring station close by at Lockport, NY, which is not shown on NETC (even on the Chart map with 'inactive' checked). I don't know why there were 2 so close together but shutting down Buffalo does not seem odd any more. Is it possible for NETC to track the Lockport EPA site now? Incidentally Syracuse has been offline since March 22, but it's still listed on Radnet so I guess it will be coming back on sometime.

I'm confused. You found a new radnet station on the EPA stations website that is not listed on NETC and you want to know if this new EPA station can be added to the NETC network?

That's right. i don't think Lockport NY is a new EPA station though. On Radnet it shows Gamma data going back at least to 2014, but apparently (as far as i can tell), has never been shown on NETC. Buffalo Gamma has just disappeared for some reason.

Doh! Buffalo is back on NETC, and I now see that EPA's Lockport and NETC's Buffalo are actually the same thing. 30 miles is too small to worry about. Sorry for the confusion.
