Program in Existence since - 2001
Program Projects - Hg, IAQ, Met, PM 2.5, Radon, Diesel, more...
Location - Leech Lake Reservation, HQ located in Cass Lake, MN
The Leech Lake Air Program (LLAP) has taken the lead in air monitoring for north central Minnesota as neither federal nor state agencies have done any type of long-term air monitoring projects in the area. The LLAP is filling data gaps for our area with PM 2.5, Mercury, and Meteorological data. In the past we have done PUF sampling for dioxins and PM 2.5 sampling with minivols. The dioxin monitoring has been a disappointment for Leech Lake. Funding for the project was not granted at a critical juncture of data collection to potentially show trends and suspect dangerous levels of airborne dioxin around a superfund site located on the Reservation.

Indoor Air Quality Tribal Indoor Air and Radiation Strategy and Plan
The U.S. EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation recently published their Tribal Indoor Air and Radiation Strategy and Plan. The plan reflects the priorities of the Office of Air and Radiation (OAR), the Office of Radiation & Indoor Air (ORIA), and the needs and priorities as expressed by many of the Tribes. This plan will discuss ORIA’s Tribal goals, and objectives and the specific activities that ORIA will conduct to meet them. This strategy and plan is considered a "living document."
