The increase in oil and gas activities in the Bakken region of North Dakota and surrounding areas has had a discernable impact on airborne particulate concentrations that impact visibility at protected sites in the region. However, the impact has been at least partially offset by a concurrent reduction in emissions from coal fired electric generating stations. Continuing the recent reductions in flaring would likely be beneficial for the regional visual air quality.
