8 Broadcaster Press September 12, 2017 www.broadcasteronline.com Smoke Impacting South Dakota Air Quality Meteorological conditions are causing smoke from fires in several western states and Canada to impact air quality in South Dakota. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) recommends you visit South Dakota’s Real Time Air Quality Index map at http://denr.sd.gov/des/ aq/aarealtime.aspx to see if smoke is currently impacting your area. Regional air quality data is available at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency site at www. airnow.gov. Western South Dakota was impacted Labor Day weekend when winds pushed smoke from the fires east to South Dakota. Air quality monitoring sites in Rapid City, Wind Cave and the Badlands indicated the 24-hour air quality standard of 35 micrograms per cubic meter was exceeded several times from Friday to Sunday. The highest reading was 71.4 micrograms per cubic meter on Sunday at Wind Cave. Strong winds on Monday moved the heavy smoke conditions out of the state. The department says air quality conditions will vary until the fires can be put out and encourages the public to visit the websites to determine if air quality in your area is reaching unhealthy levels. Everyone may experience some effects during unhealthy levels. Sensitive groups generally include children, older adults and people with lung diseases.

Troy Donnelly PIERRE, S.D. – More than $3.3 million has been recovered in the first year of South Dakota’s Obligation Recovery Center program, according to a report released today by the Bureau of Administration. “With this innovative approach, we are more efficiently and effectively engaging those who owe obligations to the state and to our citizens,” said Gov. Daugaard. “For the single parent who is owed child support or the crime victim who is supposed to receive restitution, this is making a big difference.” In addition to the $3.3 million collected in Fiscal Year 2017, the Bureau reports $7.6 million in payment plans were established. The Obligation Recovery Center was established by legislation passed during the 2015 Legislative Session. State government agencies utilize the center to recover debts and enforce child support and restitution orders. The Unified Judicial System, Secretary of State, Board of Regents and seven state agencies under the Governor’s authority currently have MOUs in place to receive the center’s assistance. The State of South Dakota contracts with CGI Technologies to operate the center. The state also has contracts in place with Progressive, Harris and Harris, and Gila, which serve as third-party debt collectors and handle debts the center has attempted to collect for 180 days.
