Cleaner School Buses Coming to Sioux Falls

A grant from the U.S. EPA will help provide for cleaner school buses in Sioux Falls.Cleaner-running school buses are coming to Sioux Falls.

The U.S. Environmental Protection agency says the Sioux Falls School District is getting $450,000 to buy what the EPA says are cleaner school buses that will reduce emissions of air pollution and thus protect the health of children.

The district will use the grant to buy up to 18 new school buses.

The $450,000 received in Sioux Falls is part of $30 million the EPA is awarding for clean diesel projects.

The Agency says it’s part of an ongoing campaign to reduce harmful diesel exhaust that can lead to asthma attacks and premature deaths.

EPA says its Diesel Emission Reduction Program is designed to replace, retrofit or repower older diesel-powered engines like marine vessels, locomotives, trucks and buses.
