A Good Idea
The U.S. EPA, NOAA, NPS, tribal, state, and local agencies developed the AIRNow Web site to provide the public with easy access to national air quality information. The Web site offers daily AQI (Air Quality Index) forecasts as well as real-time AQI conditions for over 300 cities across the US, and provides links to more detailed State and local air quality Web sites. The site also provides tips on what you can do to reduce air pollution, publications, and health facts.
Goal / Mission
The goal of this website is to provide information on air quality including potential health effects of air pollutants.
Results / Accomplishments
The AirNow website is accessible online at http://www.airnow.gov/.
