 Sources of Information about Air Pollution in your Community

You don't have to rely solely on your own perception of what is happening to the air around you. There are official sources of information -- your state and county health department, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. There are reports, fact sheets, and publications with air quality data available. Here are some sources you can request information about your community, your state and the US in general:
