Clean Air Board heard on WITF’s Smart Talk

The American Lung Association’s “State of the Air” report for 2015 concluded the Harrisburg-York-Lebanon region has the 12th worst air in the nation for year-round particle pollution.  The region actually lost ground finishing 33rd in 2014.

The drop in rankings doesn’t mean the region’s air quality is worse, but is still a reason to be concerned.

How did it get that way and maybe the better question is what can be done to improve the region’s air quality?

Appearing on Monday’s Smart Talk to answer those questions and others are Margaret Parsons, the Healthy Air Campaign Coordinator with the American Lung Association of the Mid-Atlantic and Thomas Au, President of the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania.
