The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has released The States’ View of the Air (2014) report. This report highlights the air quality in counties and cities in the United States.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has received numerous questions about adoption and implementation of the U.S. EPA’s Final Rule on Solvent Contaminated Wipes. This document explains IDEM’s current plan for implementing the new U.S. EPA rule.
IDEM wants to help the public stay informed about air pollution regulations, where air pollution comes from, how air pollution is controlled, and how Indiana’s air quality compares with national standards. Recent reports describing Indiana air quality as some of the worst in the nation are untrue. Air Quality 101, a bi-weekly bulletin from IDEM Assistant Commissioner Keith Baugues, provides accurate information about air pollution in Indiana.
