Air Quality Division Year in Review 2019
EGLE's mission is to protect Michigan's environment and public health by managing air, water, land and energy resources Protecting air quality is a priority for EGLE. Whereas historic trends show air quality continues to improve across Michigan, there is still work to be done to reduce air pollution. The AQD is committed to maintaining a robust monitoring network, conducting inspections, writing enforceable permits, and engaging with our diverse communities to continue the trend of improving air quality for the citizens of Michigan. Looking back on 2019, we see progress; but we realize our work effort cannot diminish. We must continue to take steps forward in not only doing our normal work, but also identifying what else can be done for the future. The environment is not stagnant. Therefore, our work cannot also be stagnant. The work being accomplished by AQD staff provides a state Michigan residents can be proud of. Please join us in our ongoing efforts to keep our air clean and make Michigan a healthier place to live.
We are pleased to provide you with our 2019 Air Quality Program Report.
