The Environmental Data and Projects section within the Bureau of Air is responsible for a variety of database systems and unique projects. This group is responsible for database systems that include the Kansas Environmental Information Management System (KEIMS) and the Kansas State and Local Emissions Inventory System (SLEIS). These two systems comprise nearly all of the environmental data that is submitted to the bureau from our regulated community.
The section handles other air emissions inventories for the state of Kansas too, including on-road vehicle, non-point, non-road, event categories, and is responsible for ensuring the state is adequately represented for all other air emissions reporting requirements including Greenhouse Gases, National Air Toxics, and the National Emissions Inventory.
The team is also responsible for the bureau's Environmental Quality Management Plan, ensuring that the data collected is adequately reviewed and reported following federal and state regulations and guidelines. Additional responsibilities include:
Assurance that the bureau complies with federal and divisional Title VI laws and guidance;
Environmental Justice issues related to ambient air quality pollution are addressed;
