Data needed for air quality research
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is partnering with Oregon State University to find out how people in Oregon heat their homes and the effects on air quality throughout the state.
To gather this data, DEQ’s Air Quality Division and OSU’s Consumer Insight and Market research group in Corvallis, Oregon are conducting a survey of residential home occupants in Oregon.
The survey results will help calculate the residential wood combustion portion of the National Emissions Inventory.
OSU students will also use the data to research options, costs and effects home heating has on air quality in Oregon.
Eligible participants can enter a drawing for a $50 gift card when they fill out the survey.
