Western Resource Advocates is working to ensure that both of Utah’s State Implementation Plans cover all the significant air pollution sources and will result in cleaner air as quickly as possible.

Utah’s poor air quality constitutes a public health crisis. Seven counties on the west side of the Wasatch Mountains have, for the last decade, failed to meet the short term national health-based air pollution standards for fine particulate matter (PM2.5), extremely small particles of pollution. Western Resource Advocates is working to ensure that Utah reduces air pollution now.
