Possible Expansion of the West Central Airshed

The AEN has been notified that the West Central Airshed Society is looking at the possibility of expanding the airshed to the north.

Discussions are underway to fill in the area from WCAS' current northern boundary to the bottom of the Peace Airshed. This would include Whitecourt, Fox Creek, and possibly Swan Hills.

WCAS would like to know if there are any AEN member groups (especially within the possible expansion area) who would support this idea, or have concerns with it. Read more »
