How to change your code to reduce your air pollution from the coal power plant
The National Environmental Protection Agency has published a list of the best ways to reduce pollution from coal-fired power plants.
The EPA released the list to highlight how to make life easier for coal-based power plants by removing the need to install “pollution-control devices” in residential catch basins.
Instead, it is now possible to build out “residence stair” codes that allow people to enter their own homes and use the facilities, according to the EPA.
Residence stair codes are now standard in many areas across the country.
This is important because it means more residents can access the buildings and services they need, and more can make use of these facilities, the EPA said.
“These residential stair codes can reduce emissions and prevent health impacts from the power plant by allowing people to live and work in their own houses,” the EPA states.
If you have a code for residential catch areas, or if you need help getting your code changed, the agency has a list below.
