Agricultural Air Quality Task Force
The Agriculture, Communities and Rural Environment (ACRE) objective spurred the development of the Pennsylvania Agricultural Air Quality Task Force.
The objective of ACRE is to balance the legitimate business interests of agriculture with the environmental and community concerns of local citizens and elected leaders.
ACRE will help resolve some of the interface issues that occur when the non-farm community meets production agriculture.
Purpose of the Ag Air Quality Task Force
To create an ongoing forum for the discussion of the agricultural air quality and related issues;
To provide an opportunity for sharing information and knowledge concerning these issues;
To coordinate and focus public and private resources on cost-effective solutions to help solve problems related to agricultural odors and air quality; and
To examine data and review the specific causes of agricultural air emissions, and suggest measures to access and reduce these air quality impacts.
