1) EPA Hurricane Response
this topic at the EPA website: "Evaluating air quality
is one of EPAs top priorities during the recovery of the
Gulf Coast region. Damage from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and
cleanup/restoration activities may cause releases of air toxics
and other air pollutants in the damaged areas. Such emissions
could potentially affect downwind areas. Sources of this air
pollution include: spills of volatile chemicals; start-up releases
or leaks from industrial plants; dust from building demolition
and debris transport; contaminated sediments that can be resuspended
as dust, and smoke from open burning of debris."
2) Air PErmit PEople
supports a state-by-state Directory of registered PE's that
can sign air permit applications for out-of-state PE's. If you
encounter this regularly and have to hunt down a PE in another
state that can sign for your projects visit the Air PErmit PEople
section on ActiveSET.org.
