The Task Team will make recommendations for
elements of BSMP's for both agricultural and wildlands which
will address public nuisance, health and visibility concerns.
EPA guidance will be used as a starting point. Any data collected
during the existing smoke management program assessment will
be compiled to create a clearinghouse of information available
to states/tribes and interested parties.
Call for Volunteers: The currently active
Basic Smoke Management Program (BSMP) Task Team also needs
volunteers to help develop recommendations for wildland,
agricultural, and tribal BSMPs. Surveys for wildland, agricultural,
and tribal smp's are completed, and the draft recommendations
for wildland BSMPs are nearly complete. Task Team members
need to work on finishing the recommendations for the wildland
BSMP and begin developing recommendations for agricultural
and tribal BSMPs. Additional information still needs to be
obtained on tribal SMP's. The Task Team will also be developing
a web-accessible clearinghouse of smoke management program
documents. The work needs to be completed soon, and will
likely involve biweekly conference calls and writing assignments.
