WOODSMOKE WORK GROUP UPDATES
October 2021 – National Tribal Air Association’s White Paper on the Wood Heater Emission Pilot Project for Indian Country Written by NTAA Policy Advisory Committee Member, Laura McKelvey. This White Paper details Wood Stove changeout programs and its effectiveness to help improve indoor air quality for the many Tribal citizens who rely on woodstoves as a primary or secondary heat source. NTAA supports these changeout programs and urges the EPA to meet the 1988 EPA Clean Air Act emission standards, much less the current emissions standards implemented in 2015.
December 2020 – ITEP hosted a webinar series for training Tribes on wood-stove operation and maintenance. You can view the recorded webinar series here.
