To All Interested Parties:

The Georgia Environmental Protection Division (GA EPD) announces its intent to issue the 2023 Ambient Air Monitoring Plan to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in July 2023. The GA EPD is required to produce this annual plan as part of EPA’s amended ambient air monitoring regulations established October 17, 2006.

GA EPD’s air monitoring network consists of a number of stations located throughout the state. GA EPD uses the air monitoring data to track if air quality standards are being met, to assist in enforcement actions, to determine the improvement or decline of air quality, to trace the extent of allowable industrial expansion and to provide air pollution information to the public.

    So it looks like they are planning to crack down even more on people about emissions by putting monitors that check emissions of traveling people on the road. Does that mean they will fix emission of every car for us because we drive the cars and things do mess up I get it but to enforce county emissions even more? Think about who you should really go after Mr EPA. I vote no and keep the emissions methods we have now because a county can’t help emissions of vehicles that come from other areas passing through the county for work. They are reaching to get more revenue from hard working people that are barely surviving as it is. How about fix these cars for people and see how much it hurts your wallet EPA. Just another power move for $ from the already struggling folks.

    We as people need to fight this overreach. It’s disguised as to help the environment but really it’s to generate revenue for the county. How about develope carbon scrubbers and massive filtration systems. Nasa already has the plans and it just need scaled up. EPA is a Farce disguised saying they help the environment but yet they go after people and not industry emissions. Where were they at when the train derailment happened in East Palestine Ohio? Someone has deep pockets with the EPA. Notice how the news and every online report no longer post disasters and the environmental damages there? Yeah epa can kick rocks. The agency has failed us all and only want to take where the money is good and that’s from hard working Americans that already have enough bills to pay
