Governor Thanks Citizens for Work on Ozone

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  Governor Matt Mead thanks the Upper Green River Basin Air Quality Citizens Advisory Task Force for its work. The task force finalized its recommendations on solutions to reduce ozone levels in the Upper Green River Basin on September 19.

“The members of the task force brought different perspectives and came together in a productive manner. I appreciate the many hours they contributed to this important issue,” Governor Mead said. “I look forward to the DEQ’s analysis of their recommendations.”

The task force consisted of 26 individuals, representing local residents, municipal governments, county governments, the oil and gas industry, DEQ, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, public health groups and the Governor’s Office. The University of Wyoming’s Ruckelshaus Institute of Environment and Natural Resources facilitated the task force’s work.

John Corra, DEQ Director, said his staff will review these recommendations and determine the next steps. “The recognition by all stakeholders that the ozone problems in the Upper Green must be addressed provided the common ground and the energy for an excellent collaborative process,” Corra said. “The agency is pleased to receive these recommendations and will evaluate them over the next few months.”

The recommendations are available on the DEQ's website: http://deq.state.wy.us/
