About Air Non-Point & Mobile Sources Group
The Air Non-Point & Mobile Sources (ANPMS) group works to ensure the State of Alaska meets health based air quality standards to protect public health and the environment in a cost-effective and accountable manner. We work with local communities, tribes, industries, other government agencies, environmental groups and individuals to develop and implement plans to improve air quality in Alaska.
The group works on various air quality projects and can be reached at: Air Non-Point & Mobile Sources Contacts
