LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville's top air quality official is stepping down after state and federal audits found the district does not accurately track air pollution.
Lauren Anderson will work one more week and then take vacation until her retirement on October 31.
Mayor Greg Fischer had already increased scrutiny on the agency following audits by state and federal officials that found employees were collecting faulty data to demonstrate compliance with the federal Clean Air Act.
Fischer has hired a private consulting firm to independently review staffing, training and equipment issues.
A spokesman for Fischer declined to say whether the mayor asked Anderson to leave.
