Permits, testing, monitoring and more, oh my! New story map highlights EGLE's Air Quality Division activities
April 12, 2022
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy's Air Quality Division (AQD) staff work year-round to protect Michigan's air through activities such as air permitting, inspections, testing, modeling, and monitoring. The division also works on evaluating toxic air contaminants, collecting emission information, and rule writing among other things.
The 2021 Air Quality Division Year in Review gives an overview, by the numbers, of what Air Quality staff were accomplished during the past year. The story map version walks through what the Division's metrics were, but also what these activities mean for the continued protection of air quality, public health, and the environment.
"We continue to adapt to the changing situation, while keeping the safety of our staff and the protection of Michigan residents at the forefront of our efforts. We have not stopped our core work related to inspections, air permit reviews, air emission testing and monitoring, and all the other various ways our work supports one of our state's most essential resources, our air," said Mary Ann Dolehanty, AQD director.
