Report: Region's Air Quality Sees Improvement

A Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission report shows 2019 was the first time in 20 years in which the region had one day with air pollution levels reaching the unhealthy level. 

But the report issued Thursday shows number of good air days decreased by 3 percent from November 2018 through October 2019. More days were in the ‘moderate’ than the ‘good’ range due to above-average temperatures associated with climate change.

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
