Description The
Washington Department of Ecology conducted a mobile monitoring
study in 2014 that confirmed an ozone hotspot in the Tri-Cities that was predicted in an atmospheric model. Left unchecked, these ozone levels could pose a significant risk to the health of Tri-Cities residents. Beginning in the 2021-23 biennium, Ecology is requesting an increase to the funding available for grants to local communities to prevent nonattainment with federal air quality standards.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
