[IDEM] Lakeshore Air Toxics Study Meeting
Start Date: 8/1/2013Start Time: 6:00 PM
End Date: 8/1/2013
Entry Description

Location: Du Bois Branch of the Gary Public Library, 1835 Broadway, Gary, IN.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is releasing the findings of an assessment of air toxics in the highly industrialized and heavily traveled area of Lake and Porter counties in northwest Indiana. 

 

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (U. S. EPA) identified this area as a potential high risk area via its 2005 National Air Toxic Assessment (NATA).  IDEM’s goal was to perform a detailed evaluation using methods specifically developed for evaluating air quality on a community-level scale. 

 

The meeting will be a chance for residents and stakeholders in northwest Indiana to learn how IDEM evaluated ambient air monitoring data and performed air dispersion modeling of industrial and mobile sources (cars and trucks) within the study area to assess potential health risks. 

More information is on the web at http://www.idem.IN.gov/toxic/2342.htm.
