The Missouri Air Conservation Commission elected Principal Geological Engineer Gary Pendergrass as its chair for the fourth time at their monthly December meeting. Gary has served on the seven-member commission for the past decade, and continues this active role in overseeing the state’s air conservation laws.
Since 1965, the Missouri Air Conservation Commission has upheld the state’s air conservation laws through public hearings on rule actions and related matters. Gary and his GeoEngineers colleagues are pleased to be on the forefront of interpreting the complex and evolving air quality regulations in Missouri.
“Air quality is an important issue, especially for energy producers and Missouri industry,” Gary said. “By working together, we can balance the needs of businesses with the important responsibilities we have to maintain the quality and safety of our state’s air.”
