Current Ongoing Projects

In its first of year of establishing annual research funding, the Utah Division of Air Quality (UDAQ) will greatly improve its knowledge of ambient ammonia emissions along the Wasatch Front. Our understanding of the volatile emissions attributed to Uintah Basin oil and gas operations will be enhanced. We also aim to get a better estimate of wintertime wood burning ban compliance. Important regulatory projects will include looking for sources of hazardous compounds near Bountiful, as well as taking a closer look at what comprises wintertime Cache Valley pollution. The projects listed on this page were funded by the State legislature via the Science for Solutions Research Grant for the 2019 fiscal year.
