Congratulations to our 2015 Winners
The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission’s Air Quality Awareness Program encourages residents to take action to reduce air pollution. Ground-level ozone and particle pollution form when emissions from gasoline-powered engines mix with strong, bright sunlight. These emissions collect in a stagnant air mass and form air pollution. One of the suggested actions to reduce air pollution is to use battery-powered lawn mowers and yard equipment instead of gasoline-powered ones.
As added incentive to follow this suggested action, The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission’s Air Quality Awareness Program sponsored a contest to win a prize pack of Black & Decker battery-powered yard equipment. The prize pack included:
- Weed Whacker (Model # LHT2220);
- Hedge Trimmer; and
- Sweeper/Leaf Blower Combo (Model # LCC300)
Thank you to all who participated. Check back for more contests and promotions.
