In 2013, the region was tied for the fewest number of unhealthy air quality days since new, tougher U.S. EPA standards were introduced in 1997 for ozone and particle pollution. Council of Governments staff will present new data showing the region’s progress in improving air quality. Clean Air Partners will discuss how its outreach and voluntary actions by area residents have contributed to healthier air.
