Global Pollution-Caused Mortality

2017 November VOL 16 Issue 1

As many Journal readers know, over the past several years, the Arizona Environmental Strategic Alliance (AESA) has co-sponsored numerous seminars on air pollution with both Pinal County and Maricopa County Air pollution regulatory agencies. In 2018, more air quality seminars will be held with those agencies but now that we have moved the Journal for Environmental Management to an ONLINE format, we can provide more timely information about pollution (of all genres) on a more frequent basis, just by updating this website as new data and critical information becomes available.

And, this new ONLINE format allows those of us who write for the Journal to bring you breaking news and up to date information on a much more timely basis than the bi-monthly print edition ever could.

ADEQ Leads in Deploying Arizona Management System

ADEQ first agency to take a systems approach to governmental efficiency

Recently, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality announced that the Environmental Council of the States (ECOS)  visited ADEQ to get a first-hand look at how ADEQ is successfully implementing the Arizona Management System (AMS).  ECOS included representatives of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the states of MA, CO, NE, OH, DE, WY, VA, NH, AL, NM, OK and tribal representatives.

Over the last few years, ADEQ has also conducted tours and trainings for the City of Goodyear, Maricopa County Flood Control District, Pima County Wastewater Reclamation Department, more than a dozen Arizona agencies, US EPA's Lean Action Board, PEW Charitable Trust and the states of MO, KS, RI, AR and UT. These highly requested tours give attendees a better understanding of the management system and creates an eagerness to learn, understand and implement the principles of AMS.
