EPA’s ozone health standard – what it means for us

On October 1, the Environmental Protection Agency changed its  National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for ground-level ozone to 70 parts per billion (ppb), based on extensive scientific evidence about ozone’s effects on public health and welfare. The new standards are intended improve public health protection, particularly for at-risk groups including children, older adults, people of all ages who have lung diseases such as asthma.

The Clean Air Board actively participated in the EPA rule setting process, providing comments and testimony.  Learn how the new standard will be implemented in central Pennsylvania, and what we should do next.
