Comments sought on air pollution control plan

The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency has released a draft plan for meeting federal standards for fine-particle pollution through 2025. Public comments will be accepted through Nov. 9.

After periods of air-quality violations in the 1980s, Spokane County has met the federal standards for the past 20 years. The draft plan relies on pollution control strategies that have worked in the past, including street cleaning, paving requirements for parking lots, temporary burn bans for wood stoves and stricter emission standards for stoves and limits on some industrial sources.

The draft plan can be viewed at http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/air/sips/plans/maintenancesip.htm.
