Mitigation Strategies

The Resource Manual gives a description, scientific rationale, actions underway in Detroit, successful or promising strategies used elsewhere, and applicable strategies for Detroit.  Quantitative estimates of the health benefits are included for several strategies.  The strategies fall into three groups:

  • Reducing emissions, which includes three sets of options aimed at: (1) point source controls; (2) clean energy; and (3) mobile source controls;
  • Reducing exposures, which includes two sets of options address (4) indoor air filters; (5) vegetative and non-vegetative buffers; and
  • Cross cutting strategies, which includes (6) enhanced compliance and enforcement of air quality rules, and (7) enhanced ambient monitoring strategies.
