Description Across our state, millions of Washington residents live in communities threatened by air pollution. Particle pollution from wood burning, dust, and ozone produced by vehicles and industry threaten both people’s health, and the economic vitality of these regions. Ecology’s 2021-23 budget request would increase the level of funding for pollution reduction measures and preventing federal nonattainment.
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.
