Air Quality

This page was reviewed or revised on Thursday, July 9, 2015 1:01 PM

The quality of the air we breathe is one of the most fundamental elements influencing public health. The health effects of poor air quality are well known. Over the years, many connections have been made between poor air quality and health problems ranging from mild irritation, to asthma to premature death. What is perhaps not as well known is the fact that we can do something about air quality - right here in our own community.

This section outlines issues surrounding both indoor and outdoor air quality and relates these to public health. It also provides links to several external agencies that can provide more detailed information about air quality problems and solutions.
