Air Quality Awareness Week: Preserving Clean Air

Air Quality Fact: Air quality continues to improve in Wyoming, often through community led efforts. There are national standards set by the EPA for certain air pollutants. One of those is particulate matter, or PM for short. In the 1980s, PM measurements exceeded national standards in the City of Sheridan, Wyoming, so it was designated as a nonattainment area. The City of Sheridan brought the air quality back in line with the national standards by 1994, and on April 4, 2018, was officially redesignated.
