The West Central Airshed Society – Alberta’s first airshed management zone – has been in place since 1995 to monitor, and promote effective management of, air quality within an airshed management zone. This zone is approximately 46,000 km2 and spans from the western boundary of the edmonton city limits to the BC border.
West Central Airshed Society is a multi-stakeholder group, consisting of individuals, industries, environmental organizations, municipalities and other levels of government, all dedicated to clean air and a healthy community. The Board is comprised of people who represent a variety of sectors. This approach helps ensure a number of perspectives are brought to the decision-making table.
Government officials, industry officials, and the public are all invited to attend the 20th year celebrations of West Central Airshed Society (WCAS) on Sept. 25. The celebrations will be held from noon to 2:30 p.m. at the Brazeau County office. See full article
