Administrative Historical

This record is the most complete record as to the quality of the air in the Salt Lake City area and as such may have research potential for social scientists working on environmentally- related studies. With the growing concern with the environment, it would be premature at this time to destroy these records. At a later date, the Archives may want to reconsider this decision.
