The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is soliciting project proposals under the Great Lakes Air Deposition (GLAD) program. GLAD is a program set up to address the deposition of toxic pollutants, as well as understand how these pollutants adversely affect both human and ecosystem health within the Great Lakes basin.
In the past, GLAD, under the efforts of the Great Lake Commissions (GLC) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), has supported more than 35 projects that identify, quantify, and reduce the sources, environmental transport process, deposition rates and impacts of toxic pollutants in the Great Lakes region. The GLAD program places a large emphasis on promoting scientific efforts that will increase the ability to manage this complicated but urgent environmental issue.
The available funding for the current year of the GLAD program is approximately $90,000. Successful applicants will be invited to enter into a grant agreement with IDEM to perform the work described within their proposal. Choices will be based on the selection criteria identified in Attachment A of the solicitation. IDEM anticipates funding one to two projects, depending on the scope of work and cost per proposal. The deadline for proposals is August 10, 2016.
IDEM now offers online payment options which allow you to make invoice payments by eCheck or Credit Card. At this time IDEM is only accepting payments online for customers receiving invoices from IDEM.
This document details the current air quality monitoring network and proposed changes planned for 2017. The public has the opportunity to submit comments through the COB Friday, June 17, 2016.
IDEM has developed a mechanism for settling technical disagreements called the Technical Review Panel. The goal is to enable remediation sites to move forward in a timely manner and to provide external entities a forum outside the OLQ to help resolve technical disputes with the VRP and State Cleanup Program project managers. The IDEM Land Quality in Indiana: Technical Review Panel page provides additional information about this pilot program.
IDEM will be accepting public comments on its draft 2016 303(d) List of Impaired Waters and the Consolidated Assessment and Listing Methodology used to develop it through July 5, 2016. IDEM is also seeking public input on its draft assessment methodology for surface waters that serve as a source for public water supplies, which is included in the notice of comment period, which is available online.
The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has released The States’ View of the Air (2016) report. This report highlights the air quality in counties and cities in the United States. Like a report card, IDEM has graded areas on the state of their air quality under the federal standards for ozone and fine particles.
