Report: EPA 10 years behind in setting some air quality standards

June 28th, 2010

While BP continues to take a public relations flogging for its handling of the Gulf Oil Spill, the very organization that is supposed to be protecting the environment may be having issues of its own, according to a recently-released report. The Environmental Protection Agency’s inspector general released findings last week claiming that the agency is 10 years behind schedule in setting guidelines for a range of toxic air pollutants. The report said the EPA had failed to develop emissions standards due in 2000 for a number of pollutants, and that the agency had not met targets set forth in a 1999 document, including tracking urban dwellers’ risk of health problems related to exposure to pollutants.
