Friday, February 07, 2014

The Central Texas Clean Air Coalition (CAC), a regional collaboration of city and county governments in Bastrop, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties in partnership with the CAPCOG, has won a national award for its ozone-reduction efforts.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 2014 Clean Air Excellence Award honors innovate work that helps decrease emissions from targeted pollutants, serves as a model for others and proves sustainable.

CAC's successful implementation of its Regional 8-Hour Ozone Flex Plan, a voluntary pollution-curbing initiative that has helped the Austin-Round Rock metroplitan area stay in compliance with federal air quality standards, won in the award competition's Community Action category that recognizes partnership-based efforts.

The EPA will host an awards ceremony honoring the various winners on April 2 in Arlington, Va.
