Ozone Action Plan outreach gets under way

Monday, February 11, 2013

With the Central Texas Clean Air Coalition’s (CAC) acceptance into the Ozone Advance Program, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency initiative to help areas stay in step with federal ozone standards, stakeholders are invited to help develop a new regional air quality plan.

CAC, a Capital Area Council of Governments committee, comprises five area counties charged with implementing the 8-Hour O3 Flex Plan, an ongoing regional initiative to reduce ozone pollution. 

Through its advisory subcommittee, the coalition kicked off outreach efforts this month by presenting a training for interested local government staff and others willing to participate in helping obtain public input. Participating outreach partners would help spread the word about the OAP’s purpose, ozone air quality challenges facing the region and more.

Organizations interested in outreach training or offering input on the plan as stakeholders can contact Andrew Hoekzema. > Go
