FNSB Air Quality Conference: Sep. 21-22

Information Insights was pleased to participate in the Fairbanks North Star Borough air quality conference this past weekend, targeting local issues such as particulate pollution and wood burning. EPA officials, local community members, and state regulators all spoke at the conference. The immediacy of the need for improvements to local air quality was stressed by the EPA representatives present at the conference.

Information Insights has been working with the community’s Air Quality Stakeholders Group since June to find local solutions to our air quality issues. Many stakeholders participated in a round table discussion at the conference on Saturday afternoon. Brian Rogers and John Davies gave an update on the Stakeholders Group’s progress.
