Air Quality

Clean Air Act Section 103 Program

The CAA 103 Program is funded by grants received by the U.S EPA.  The grant funds one full time person, the Air Quality Specialist, to carry out the duties of ozone and meteorological monitoring.  The purpose of the grant is to establish baseline data related to ground ozone levels and compare the results to the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS).    The air monitoring station is located near the Tribal Headquarters south of Stroud, across from the juvenile detention center.

Current grant activities include:

  • Reviewing daily ozone and meteorological data to determine validity of data.
  • Annually compare data against NAAQS to determine attainment/non-attainment status.
  • Investigate air quality issues as requested by tribal members and leaders.
  • Conduct Radon tests at the tribal headquarters and provide remediation information as needed.
  • Perform preventive maintenance and repairs as needed on air monitoring equipment.
