WNC Air Recognizes Local Industry for Compliance

WNC Regional Air Quality Agency Recognizes Local Industry for Compliance with Air Quality Regulations

For the twelfth year in a row, the WNCRAQA is recognizing permitted facilities that have been in compliance with all aspects of their permit as well as all other WNCRAQA Rules and Regulations over the past year.  This year, there were 56 such facilities.  As part of our efforts to continue to improve upon the annual awards recognition program, staff consulted with the Advisory Committee in 2012 and the awards were renamed to better reflect the type of recognition they represent.

The following is a list of facilities that are being recognized with a Clean Air Compliance Award certificate this year.
