May is Clean Air Month It all adds up to cleaner air
- Poetry contest
Attention teachers! The 2016 Air, Air Everywhere Poetry Contest submission deadline is Friday, May 6, 2016.
Clean air is important to human and ecosystem health. Poor air quality can affect people of all ages, especially those sensitive to air pollution, including people with asthma or heart conditions, people who work and exercise outdoors, and older adults and children. These facts make it all the more important to understand air quality and recognize the importance of clean air.
Since the creation of the Clean Air Act in 1970, our state's air quality has continued to improve. The department works closely with industry and businesses to reduce air emissions. Individual citizens are also responsible for our state's improving air quality. Emissions from items we use regularly, such as cars, furnaces and paints, have decreased over time and are all important to the improving air quality we have measured.
