Morongo tribe recognized for its air quality program

The Morongo Band of Mission Indians has been honored for its Air Quality Program. The tribe received the 2018 Virgil Masayesva Tribal Air Programs Excellence Award from a consortium of environmental agencies, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The award, presented May 16 at the National Tribal Forum on Air Quality Management in Minnesota, recognized the tribe’s multi-faceted Air Quality Program, which conducts air-quality assessments and adjustments to improve indoor air quality at schools, businesses and homes on the reservation near Banning.
For more than a decade, the Morongo Air Monitoring Station has measured pollutants in the region. The program’s education efforts range from online air quality alerts to school presentations. Morongo also is part of the Southern California Tribal Air Monitoring Collaborative.
