This program is conducting air monitoring at eight tribal sites throughout Oklahoma. At three of the tribal sites, ITEC is monitoring for criteria pollutants and meteorological parameters. These pollutants are carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxides, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. The meteorological parameters are temperature, humidity, precipitation, wind speed and wind direction.
At the eight sites, fine particulate matter is monitored as part of the EPA's National PM2.5 Network. Other program initiatives have included: GIS mapping of tribal trust lands; inventorying major and minor air sources for the ITEC member tribes; reviewing the state of Oklahoma's new and/or modified major source permits; and providing technical assistance and training to the member tribes for various clean air aspects.
