APCD Releases Final Report of the Multipollutant Stakeholder Group
The Air Pollution Control District is releasing the Final Report of the Multipollutant Stakeholder Group convening process, which kicked-off in November 2019 and completed in April 2020. Through this process, more than 60 representatives from over 36 entities or organizations came together to receive up-to-date information about Louisville’s air quality challenges and collaboratively develop more than 90 recommendations for the APCD and the community-at-large to advance local air quality goals. While much focus was given to ozone pollution – for which Louisville is not meeting the current national standard – the group expanded its discussion and looked for opportunities to reduce emissions of fine particulates and air toxics, as well as recommended strategies to reduce exposure and increase awareness of the importance of protecting our air quality.
This report not only captures the process through which the MPSG convened and the results of its efforts, but also should serve as a resource for our community that provides an overview of air quality here in Louisville. Air pollution impacts us all, and while our city’s air pollution has improved dramatically over the last few decades, much work remains to continue on our path toward achieving better air quality and protecting the health of all residents. This report represents the latest progress made toward those goals and provides strategies that our entire community can be a part of as we move forward.
The report can be found on the APCD’s website at
