The Missouri Air Conservation Commission elected Principal Geological Engineer Gary Pendergrass as chair at its meeting earlier this month. This is Gary’s third term as chair during the nine years he’s served on the seven-member commission. Gary leads GeoEngineers’ environmental work in the Springfield, Missouri office, and brings years of air quality experience to the role.
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.”
