We are all responsible for taking care of our air. Our department strives to monitor and protect our outdoor air quality through regulations and programs to reduce pollutants that lead to issues like smog, acid rain, climate change and the thinning ozone layer. Poor air quality can affect our health, lead to increased health care costs and also affect natural resources.
This section has information about all of these issues and how we can make a difference through our choices and actions.
