2011 Clean Air Action Survey Results Now Available

During the fall of 2011, the Center for Applied Research and Rural Studies (CARRS) at Central Michigan University worked with the West Michigan Clean Air Coalition to conduct a scientific survey of residents’ views about air pollution and related issues in Kent, Ottawa, and Muskegon Counties. The goal of the survey was also to assess citizens’ awareness of and compliance with Clean Air Action Days.

clean air action logoNew Program Name

The West Michigan Clean Air Coalition is thrilled to announce that its Ozone Action program has now become the Clean Air Action program. The program will now announce Action Days when ground level ozone, fine particulate matter, or both, are expected to reach or exceed the "unhealthy for sensitive groups" threshold on the air quality index. Since it is possible to have unhealthy levels of fine particulate matter throughout the year, the Clean Air Action program is now year-round.

 

 

Stay Informed about Air Quality Year-Round!

Please remember to sign up for notification of Clean Air Action Days, and help protect your health and the health of your community by taking voluntary actions to keep our air clean.

 


Consider carpooling, taking public transportation, walking, or biking every day but especially on Action Days. Using an alternative to driving just one day a week for a year can save the typical commuter about 1,200 miles on their vehicle and about $600 in driving costs according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
