Air Management Study Group

The Air Management Study Group is a stakeholder working group formed in 2013 by the DNR Air Program. The group serves as a forum for the program to receive input from and provide information to stakeholder organizations. The goal of the study group is to provide the Air Program with constructive feedback on policy and technical issues and to work collaboratively with DNR staff to find workable solutions.

The study group identifies issues and topics of interest that can be addressed by ad hoc subgroups. Subgroup members are expected to research and develop recommendations on the selected topics for presentation to the full group.

The study group meets quarterly or semi-annually, with additional subgroup meetings scheduled as needed. Meetings are open to the public.

Initiatives

The study group has worked with the Air Program on its air permit streamlining initiative. For more information, visit the Air permit streamlining page.

Other topics addressed by the study group are summarized in the meeting notes posted on the "Past meetings" tab below.

The study group developed a list of priority topics that informs the agenda for its quarterly meetings. The list will be updated annually.
