With summer and warmer weather comes increased air pollution. You can always find an up-to-date air quality index on the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment’s Air Pollution Control webpage (right now air quality is moderate in Denver). The site also includes all you need to know on such various air quality topics as asbestos, climate change/greenhouse gas, fire and burning, indoor air quality, lead, mercury, motor vehicles, oil and gas, ozone, regional haze, and more. For instance, if you’re experiencing health ailments you suspect might be attributable to the air quality in your home or office, you can check this webpage for information on what might be causing the problem. Or, if you’re wondering how to make your vehicle run as cleanly as possible, you can also find information on this site. As wildfire season approaches, it will also be helpful to check the air quality index as smoke and ash can drift for miles. This is a very helpful resource for any information you might need on Colorado’s indoor and outdoor air quality.
