CT’s air gets an F

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The American Lung Association has a new online scorecard of air quality across the US. Every county in CT gets an F for high ozone days. Litchfield and New London get C’s for particle pollution but Fairfield, Hartford and New Haven get an F on that measure as well. High levels of ozone and particle pollution are linked to heart attacks, allergies, and premature births among other problems. Thankfully there are steps you can take to minimize your risk, as well as advocacy links to support policies that make the air cleaner for all of us.
