Air pollution season officially begins on March 1 in North Texas.

This year, take action by checking out Air North Texas, a regional public awareness campaign that educates and encourages residents to make clean air choices. Follow real-time air quality monitoring data, sign up for air pollution action day alerts, investigate commuting alternatives and learn clean air strategies for home, school or work.

A 10-county region in North Texas is in nonattainment for ozone levels. Ozone can reach unhealthy levels on hot sunny days in urban environments. Motor vehicle exhaust, gasoline vapors, emissions from industrial facilities and electric utilities, and chemical solvents contribute to ozone pollution. Even relatively low levels of ozone can have negative health effects.

Join the City of Fort Worth by supporting the campaign today and making a positive impact on air quality tomorrow.
