Air Quality - Natural Resources
AACOG’s Natural Resources Department addresses air quality issues in the region by bringing together stakeholders from all interests - government, industry, business, and residents - to develop air pollution reduction plans that benefit our quality of life.
Guided by the Air Improvement Resources committees, which represent different sectors of the community, staff members conduct technical projects that provide the data analysis necessary for air quality planning.
