Emission inventories are used to help determine significant sources of air pollutants establish emission trends over time, target regulatory actions, and estimate air quality through computer dispersion modeling. An emission inventory includes estimates of the emissions from various pollution sources in a specific geographical area.
Garfield County has worked diligently to provide consistent and factually correct air quality information based on the best research and science available. We have increased public awareness about air quality issues by distributing information in many formats and through several media outlets.
