Working to improve the health of the population and the quality of life of the people we serve.
Air Quality refers to the state of the air around us. Good air quality indicates clean, clear, unpolluted air which is essential for everyone and everything in our environment. Poor air quality occurs when pollutants reach concentrations that endanger the health of the population or the environment around us.
Understanding the sources of pollutants can help us find ways to improve the quality of the air we breathe.
