Michigan to Host Air Emissions Reporting Workshops
1,900 Michigan facilities are required to annually report emissions of
air pollutants to the state Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)
every year, and the DEQ is offering a workshop to help these facilities
submit their reports electronically using the Michigan Air Emissions
Reporting System (MAERS).
The "Introduction to MAERS" workshops will be held in Gaylord on
Feb. 7, Livonia on Feb. 12, Kalamazoo on Feb. 21 and
Lansing on Feb. 26. This hands-on training is designed for those
who are new to MAERS or those who need more comprehensive training on
the concepts and software. The Intro workshops take participants step
by step through the new MAERS version 2007.0.0 software on computers.
Workshop participants will learn MAERS software basics, how to complete
the electronic forms and submit the report, and how to avoid common
mistakes encountered when completing and submitting a MAERS report. The
registration fee of $75 includes refreshments and workshop materials.
Workshop attendees will receive the MAERS Workbook and the MAERS version 2007.0.0 software. Registration can be made at

Workshops"). For registration information, contact the
Environmental Assistance Center at 1-800-662-9278.
