DNREC’s Division of Air Quality aims to get better mileage out of its customer satisfaction program in the future and used the Delaware State Fair as the vehicle this year not only to tout the program but to tout alternative means of transportation as its State Fair theme, with a drawing that awarded a new bicycle to Samantha Hudran of Harrington for completing DAQ’s online customer satisfaction survey after visiting the fair.
DOVER (Aug. 9, 2016) – Delaware has again taken action to reduce air quality and public health impacts from upwind sources through a DNREC petition asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to find that the Harrison Power Station near Haywood, W. Va., with its three large coal-fired electric generating units, is emitting air pollutants in violation of the federal Clean Air Act (CAA) and National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for harmful ozone.
DOVER – On behalf of Delawareans and public health, DNREC has taken two recent actions through the federal court system and US Environmental Protection Agency aimed at requiring “upwind states” to reduce air pollution generated within their borders that carries into and pollutes Delaware’s air, causing asthma, respiratory disease, and other public health problems for Delawareans.
Demolition contractors and municipality representatives who want to learn more about demolition-related requirements and regulations are encouraged to attend public workshops offered by DNREC’s Division of Air Quality (DAQ) and Small Business Environmental Assistance Program.
