Detroit Free Press: Free Press releases database of air pollution permits

Detroit Free Press: Free Press releases database of air pollution permits. “The Free Press is making air permit data available for the first time to improve access and to help build on our work examining air pollution in communities with long-standing racial and socioeconomic disparities. Last year, the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy approved 309 permits for air pollution that remained active at year’s end. A Free Press analysis of the one-year snapshot alone found a relationship among site location, race and poverty in Michigan communities.”
