The physical environment is a crucial component of any individual’s health and well-being. Every community needs access to safe air, land and water. LRAPA has curated together a collation of topics commonly asked about by the community to provide information, important details, and connect interested community members with resources.
Explore the many topics of information on our Community Center webpage.
A Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) is an environmentally beneficial project funded by a company or individual to mitigate part of a civil penalty assessed by LRAPA. SEPs are ways a business can choose to benefit the community in which they’re based by funding a SEP.
Learn more about LRAPA’s approved SEPs and potentially submit a project for review and possible approval on LRAPA’s Supplemental Environmental Projects webpage.
LRAPA does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, age, sex, sexual orientation, or marital status in administration of its programs or activities and LRAPA does not retaliate against any individual because they have exercised their rights to participate in, or oppose actions protected by, 40 CFR Parts 5 and 7 or for the purpose of interfering with such rights.
Learn more about LRAPA’s nondiscrimination policies and procedures by visiting our Non-Discrimination Policy webpage.
Wildfire smoke is responsible for creating the worst air quality in Lane County history. As climate change drives a longer and more intense wildfire season, it’s important to familiarize yourself with air quality resources and guidelines around wildfire smoke.
Learn more about wildfire smoke in lane county and how to protect indoor air quality during smoke intrusions on our Wildfire Smoke webpage.
Prescribed Burning is the process of planning and starting a controlled fire to achieve a specific goal. Prescribed burns are conducted on days that are dry enough to minimize smoke production and windy enough to take smoke out of the Willamette Valley Smoke-Sensitive Receptor Area (SSRA), yet not be so strong as to create fire-control problems.
Learn more about prescribed burns in Lane County and the groups who conduct local burns on our Prescribed Burns webpage.
Indoor Air Quality refers to the quality of air within and around buildings and structures, specifically as it relates to the health and comfort of those inside. Air quality impacts our health and wellbeing. Understating and controlling common pollutants can reduce your exposure and risk associated with indoor air pollution.
Learn more about the common sources of indoor air pollution and the methods to protect air quality on our Indoor Air Quality webpage.
