Air Quality Program

Staff respond to complaints and provide consultation to citizens on outdoor air and indoor air quality problems. Educational materials covering a wide range of air quality issues are available and distributed to residents. Currently, presentations on air quality issues are being developed for both community groups and students. In addition to serving individual air quality needs within the community, staff are compiling data regarding outdoor air pollution. Data regarding ambient air pollution concentrations are being collected and correlated with area hospital childhood asthma admissions. Also, area industries that hold air emission permits from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) are being mapped to determine if their locations are related to asthma patient addresses.
