Air quality forum planned

An annual public forum on local air quality issues is planned for Oct. 5 in Grand Junction.

The forum is scheduled for 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 536 Ouray Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

Citizens for Clean Air and the League of Women Voters of Mesa County will host the forum to address three topics: trash burning in Mesa County, an air quality monitoring project and the effects of oil and natural gas production wastewater pits south of Whitewater.
