Awards and Recognition

Leadership in Ozone Reduction Awareness (LORA) Awards

The Leadership in Ozone Reduction Awareness (LORA) Awards are administered by TriCounty Health. You can learn more about the LORA Award program at TriCounty Health's website.

Joint Statement on the 2020 LORA Award

Due to the significant challenges and personnel demands posed by COVID-19, TriCounty Health and the Uinta Basin Ozone Working Group have made the decision to pause the LORA award for the 2019-2020 winter season. TriCounty, the Uinta Basin Ozone Working Group, and participating members of the oil and gas industry in the Basin are committed to continued focus on reducing ozone in the Basin and plan to restart the award next year.
