Welcome to WESTAR
The Western States Air Resources Council (WESTAR) was founded in 1988 by eight western state air agencies. Since hiring staff and opening its office in early 1992, the Council has grown to fifteen states extending from Alaska to New Mexico; from Hawaii to North and South Dakota. WESTAR was formed to promote the exchange of information between the States, serve as a forum to discuss western regional air quality issues of common concern and share resources for the common benefit of the member states. WESTAR, located in Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon, has a staff of four and is funded primarily by grants from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
