Utah Department of Environmental Quality Seeks Public Comment
The Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is requesting public comment on how to use VW settlement funds. The state agency setup an advisory committee who have offered recommendations on how to distribute the funds (see table below). The public is encouraged to use an Excel-based calculator to learn which categories will achieve the needed NOx reductions while staying within the funding limits. Reviewing the advisory committee’s suggestions is also encouraged. The public is invited to comment on their recommendations as well. Comments are due by November 30, 2017.
