Borough Air Quality Letters Yield Single Citation

Jun 12, 2017

The Fairbanks North Star Borough toughened its air regulations in advance of this spring’s EPA re-designation of much of the borough as a serious non-attainment area for fine-particulate pollution. As KUAC’s Robert Hannon reports, the borough issued more than 170 air quality violation letters, but only one citation followed.
