Air Quality

Poultry Facility Emission USU study: The UDAQ-NAEMS outreach project uses the results to relate potential risk to air quality to the animal feeding industry in Utah.

The Utah Air Quality Team was established to determine how the National Air Emissions Monitoring Study (NAEMS) protocols would work in the arid western states. Most of the work on NAEMS was being done in the more humid East and Midwest.

The Utah Division of Air Quality (UDAQ) received a grant from congress to test the EPA NAEMS protocols in arid western conditions. In cooperation with the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF), UDAQ contracted with Dr. Randy Martin of Utah State University and others for the protocol test project.
