EPC HEARS AIR QUALITY PLAN FOR ANIMAL FEEDING, APPROVES DEPOSIT RULE
DES MOINES - The Environmental Protection Commission heard Monday the DNR's plans to adopt rules for outdoor air quality standards for hydrogen sulfide, ammonia and odor.
The plans include a schedule for adoption, a monitoring strategy and an estimate of $1.7 million needed for the first two years of implementation. Proposed rules will go to the commission next month for approval.
The commission approved rule changes on beverage deposits, clarifying labeling requirements, and the requirements for redemption centers and exempt dealers. The rules revisions were developed with the input of a 23-member advisory committee representing the industry and public.
In other action the commission approved the following contracts:
The members of the commission are Terrance Townsend, Chair, Newton; James Braun, Latimer; Lisa Davis-Cook, West Des Moines; Kathryn Murphy, LeMars; Rita Venner, Breda; Gary C. Priebe, Algona; Darrell Hanson, Manchester; J. Kelly Tobin, New Market and Lori Glanzman, Mt. Pleasant. The director of the DNR is Jeffrey Vonk.
