In our continuing pursuit to improve Utah’s air quality, improve public participation in greater oversight of major air pollution sources, and protect public health and the environment, a settlement between the Utah Division of Air Quality (UDAQ) and Western Resource Advocates representing Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment, and FRIENDS of Great Salt Lake was signed on September 9, 2015. The settlement will require a Title V permit for Tesoro oil refinery in N. Salt Lake. The Title V Clean Air Act permit will help reduce air pollution by Tesoro by creating more rigorous and protective permits, and involve the public in implementing the settlement with UDAQ.
