SALT LAKE CITY — A vocal crowd of environmentalists packed a Division of Air Quality meeting Wednesday afternoon; they wanted to inspire board members to make changes to its plan to clean the state’s air, but their comments didn’t sway the board.
The DAQ has been working on getting the state into compliance with the Clean Air Act for years. They finally passed a plan to accomplish that goal, but the finish line is far in the distance in 2019.
“It is not happening aggressively enough. These numbers, these years, they’re just too far away,” said concerned citizen Thomas Plustwik during Wednesday’s board meeting.
