DOVER – Delaware is taking action again to reduce detrimental impacts of poor air quality coming into the state from upwind sources, with DNREC seeking to have the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency find that the Homer City, Pa. Generating Station is emitting these air pollutants in violation of the federal Clean Air Act (CAA).
DOVER – DNREC’s Division of Air Quality planned to hold three public workshops this week to share information with Delawareans on climate change, the EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) and how Delaware intends to comply with it, as well as advising the public on how to take advantage of related grants and other programs offered by DNREC’s Division of Energy & Climate. One workshop was planned for each county, but a scheduling conflict has forced postponement of the New Castle County workshop originally set for Thursday, Sept. 29.
DNREC’s Division of Air Quality will hold three public workshops later this month to share information with Delawareans on climate change, the EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) and how Delaware plans to comply with it, as well as how to take advantage of grants and other programs offered by DNREC’s Division of Energy & Climate.
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.
