FOR RELEASE: THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2000

26 CITIZEN, INDUSTRY, GOVERNMENT GROUPS CITED
FOR INNOVATIVE EFFORTS TO CLEAN AIR



For their outstanding and innovative efforts in helping clean the nation’s air, 26 local and state governments, industries and citizens groups will receive EPA’s first Clean Air Excellence Awards today in Minnesota. Their accomplishments ranged from cost effective approaches to housing design that reduce energy and minimize overall environmental impact, to a program integrating electric vehicles into the average American’s lifestyle. This new awards program was established at the recommendation of the Clean Air Act Advisory Committee (CAAAC), an independent group of advisors established by EPA in 1990 to advise the Agency on implementation of the Act. The CAAAC also picked today’s winners out of 117 entries. The awards ceremony will take place today at The Science Museum of Minnesota, 120 West Kellogg Blvd., Saint Paul, Minn.
