Air quality board unanimous in limiting emissions that cause winter ozone spikes near Jonah, Anticline gas fields.
Wyoming’s Air Quality Advisory Board hears conflicting views on Wyoming standards as feds move further to reduce ozone.
Looking back at this flare up, I’m struck by how much flash and heat is concentrated on conjecture when there’s so much more of substance to be upset about.

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality on Thursday made public its Ozone Strategy, a requirement of the federal “non-attainment” designation applied to the Sublette County area due to multiple wintertime ozone events that threatened human health. According to DEQ, the spikes in ground-level ozone were triggered by the presence of air pollutants from the Pinedale Anticline and Jonah natural gas fields.
