Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Air Pollution Control Board was created by resolution in 1955. In 1958, resolutions abolished this board and created the Air Pollution Control Advisory Board. This was disbanded in 1967 with the creation of the Puget Sound Air Pollution Control Agency. Both boards were responsible for studying air pollution and advising the City Council on methods and legislation to combat the problem.

Content DescriptionReturn to Top

Minutes of the boards’ meetings document members in attendance and topics discussed. Much of the dialogue centered on state and local air pollution control legislation. Board members drafted changes to the Seattle-King County air pollution code and worked on pollution-related ordinances. They also gave formal comments on legislation on the state level, suggesting changes when they deemed it necessary. Trash incinerators were also discussed at length in terms of design of pollution control devices, compliance with new codes, and alternate methods of waste disposal. Other topics covered in the minutes included inspections, pollution-related court cases, air sampling, and Cleaner Air Week.
