Air quality impacts our quality of life in numerous ways. Poor outdoor air quality can decrease visibility and negatively impact our respiratory health. Outdoor air pollution is generated by fires, construction, and street maintenance, as well as chemical pollutants generated by vehicles, oil and gas operations, and even spilling gas at the fueling station.
Steps to Better Air
