EMISSION CONTROL AND
Environmental Protection Agency conducts a research in which state officials
want to find the type(s) of vehicle emissions testing in your
community, the test procedures and results, what can you do if
your car just failed an emissions test, and what the level of air
pollution is in your community due to vehicle emissions.
You (at Davea) are asked to collaborate with other High School
classes in DuPage County as well as with other individuals in
your community to identify the current status of vehicle
emissions testing in DuPage County, to analyze some results of
emissions testing, and to predict the levels of air pollution in
your county due to vehicle emissions.
