The Grand Canyon is a national landmark celebrated by thousands of visitors every year, and federal legislators are evaluating ways to reduce air pollution surrounding the area. According to the Arizona Republic, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) suggested the installation of a catalytic converter at a nearby coal-fired power plant to eliminate haze around the canyon.
EPA officials noted that the Navajo Generating Station near Page, Arizona, is among the primary contributors to haziness at the landmark. Additionally, the station's emissions of nitrogen oxide affects all five southern Utah national parks and Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado.
With the catalytic converter in place, federal administrators stated that the device could significantly lower nitrogen oxide emissions and potentially reduce visible Grand Canyon haze by roughly one-third. EPA leaders noted that they would like to use the best technology available to enhance air quality in the region.
