NJ WILL REQUIRE MOST GAS PUMPS TO INSTALL AIR POLLUTION TRAPS.
NJ has ordered gasoline stations in the state to install equipment to trap noxious vapors released by their
pumps in an effort to meet a Dec. 1987 deadline for federal air quality standards. Gasoline vapors are
considered one of the main sources of air pollution. Most of the state will lose federal construction project
funding if smog levels don't meet federal standards by the deadline. Those pumping less than 10,000
gallons a month (2,259 gas stations out of 6,785 in the state) are exempt.
