Urban Air Toxics Project

Printer-friendly version

This project consists of development and coordination of a broad-based stakeholder workgroup that met to discuss, review and recommend strategies to USEPA on practical, cost-effective and voluntary methods for achieving air toxics reductions within Milwaukee County.

Using the 1996 National Air Toxics Assessment results to investigate air toxic concerns, the stakeholder workgroup determined it would work on reducing mobile source air toxics. Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) assisted by applying for a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) grant from the Department of Transportation for project funding.

In the Spring of 2004, WNDR was awarded $970,000 of CMAQ funding to retrofit 370 school buses in Southeast Wisconsin with catalytic converters. A public launch of the project was held on June 30, 2004. It is expected that the school bus retrofits will occur during the 2004-05 school year. In addition, public and private partners from around the state have been contributing matching funds.
