In a bid to improve the air quality in the Wyoming National Park, the Wyoming Department of Natural Resources and the Wyoming Highway Patrol have announced they will purchase and test refrigerators to help combat the problem.
The announcement came Thursday in a news release announcing the purchase of refrigerators by the Wyoming State Park Department.
The $8.5 million deal is part of a $2 billion, two-year plan to expand and modernize parks.
It includes purchasing two refrigerators, three boilers and one compressor to help improve air quality for visitors and residents.
According to the release, the refrigerators will be used in conjunction with the Wyoming’s Water Resources Department, which recently installed an automated water treatment system to help protect the park from water contamination.
The refrigerators can be found at most of the parks water sources, including the Rocky Mountain National Park and the park’s national wildlife refuge.
In addition to the refrigerated food, the park also plans to use them to process water samples to monitor the park water quality.
The state parks department will spend $2 million of the purchase money on equipment and personnel.
It will also use the refrigeration technology to help manage the parks wastewater treatment facilities, which are located at several parks.
Wyoming’s Water Resource Department is responsible for wastewater treatment, including wastewater treatment plants, wastewater treatment tanks, and wastewater treatment systems for rivers, streams and lakes.
The park is also responsible for regulating the water quality at parks visitor centers and drinking water wells.
The department also oversees the state’s wastewater treatment system.
