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.

Wisconsin's air quality continues to improve. The DNR works closely with industry and businesses to reduce air emissions. Citizens also play a role in protecting and improving air quality in the state. Emissions from items used regularly, such as cars, furnaces and paints, have decreased over time and are all important to the improving air quality.

New online mapping tool and mobile app

The DNR recently launched a new Wisconsin Air Monitoring and Data Acquisition System (WAMDAS). The system includes a new air quality mapping tool for the public to get up-to-date air quality information, new air quality report options and specific monitor information.

The department also launched the WisconsinAQM mobile app for android devices (the Apple version will be available early this summer). The app, available now in the Google Play Store [exit DNR], allows the public to receive air quality updates from anywhere using their mobile device.
