Project Title & Description
ASSOCIATED GENERAL CONTRACTORS OF GREATER MILWAUKEE
This project will improve air quality in the Greater Milwaukee area and other areas of Wisconsin by reducing emissions from in-use diesel engines.
AGC's diesel fleet consists of twenty three engines of mostly off-road construction equipment, which operates primarily in non-attainment areas of the state. AGC will accomplish this emission reduction goal through replacing or upgrading these engines to newer emission standards. Additionally, the practice of replacing/upgrading engines can have a lasting benefit due to the proven longevity of diesel powered off-road machines; these vehicles have been shown to have a useful life span of several decades. Also, this project will improve local air pollution at construction sites where cleaner engines are used and will reduce the cases of asthma and other pollution related respiratory illnesses.
