Clearing The Air Community Workshop Series

Louisville's ongoing effort to reduce air pollution is the focus of a workshop series hosted by the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District.

The goal of "Clearing The Air" is to give the public an inside look at the APCD, everything from the science of air pollution to the laws and regulations that protect our health from harmful air.

"We're excited to share the District’s work in a setting that will encourage dialogue and learning," said Michelle King, APCD Director of Program Planning. "We can learn more about our community's questions and concerns, while providing an opportunity for person-to-person conversations with individuals who want to know more about Louisville’s air quality."

Although the smoggy, polluted skies of the 1970s are a distant memory, Louisville still must work to meet federal air quality standards. As a major industrial and logistics hub located in a heavily populated river valley, Louisville is challenged to control air pollution while maintaining a robust local economy.

"Air quality is a very important topic in Louisville that affects every community," said APCD Environmental Coordinator Torend Collins, who is overseeing the workshop series. "These workshops are a great way to learn more about APCD and how we, as members of the community, can continue to improve Louisville's air."

"Clearing The Air" will consist of seven free workshops, all to be held at the Louisville Free Public Library, 301 York St.

"Working with our partners in the community and the Environmental Protection Agency, we hope to provide information and training to further empower residents with resources that will help improve our health and our understanding of the successes and challenges that make up the story of Louisville's air – past, present, and future," King said.
