Fermilab is responsible for tracking and monitoring existing and potential emissions into the air to ensure that the site remains a low emitter of criteria and hazardous air pollutants. Any new sources, or changes to existing sources, should always be communicated to the Environmental Protection Department for potential tracking.

Before there was the National Accelerator Laboratory, there was the subdivision of Weston, Ill. This area is now part of the Fermilab site. Photo: Fermilab Ever wondered why farmhouses and barns are part of the landscape at a physics research lab such as Fermilab? Well before there was an energy, intensity or cosmic frontier, there was an agricultural frontier, and before there was a Fermilab, there was a farming community. Recently, the ESH&Q Section commissioned the development of an Archaeological…

More than 60 Fermilab employees and their family and friends spent their free time on the evening of Dec. 5 volunteering in Aurora to help the charity Feed My Starving Children.
