Hudson Valley Air Quality Gets Poor Grades in Latest Data

Hudson Valley Air Quality Gets Poor Grades in Latest Data

Seilback said overall, this report shows nationally, air quality has gotten better and continues to improve.

This marks the 19th year that the "State of the Air" report has been issued, and the 19th time Allegheny County has received an F grade for particle pollution. Chico is ranked 21. Winnebago county earned a "C" grade for high ozone days.

Allegheny County was also the only county in the state to experience an increase in unhealthy air days for particulate pollution-from an average of 6 to 8.5 unhealthy days per year.

The American Lung Association released its 2018 "State of the Air" report Wednesday and the report provided some interesting news, the group said.

However, not all of the news about the region in the report was good. The report focuses on ozone, which is smog, and particle pollution. Those offices only monitor air quality in select counties.

Still, Seilback said about 134 million Americans live in counties with unhealthy ozone or particle pollution levels. Up until last year's "State of the Air" report, Toledo's county had always gotten an F - as seven OH counties continued to do last year, including the counties for Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, and Canton. More coastal Bay Area counties like San Francisco, Marin, Napa, Santa Cruz and Sonoma all earned "A" grades on the same test, despite being more populated than the inland communities that fared far worse.

"We certainly applaud the progress made in the USA and in Southwestern Pennsylvania with respect to air pollution in the past", Stewart said.

San Joaquin and Santa Cruz County, by far the two worst counties for particle pollution in this extended region, saw significant improvements from peak pollution levels reported previous year, but still earned F grades.

Eight of the top ten worst cities for ozone are located in California.

The lower San Joaquin Valley, where the majority of Northern California's air pollution drifts and settles, dominated the list of most-polluted for both long-term and short-term particulate matter with Visalia, Bakersfield and Fresno all landing in the Top 5 worst in the nation.

The report's "key findings" note ozone pollution has significantly worsened compared to the prior report, with 133.9 million people exposed to unhealthy air pollution in 2014-2016, compared to 125 million in 2013-2015.

Pittsburgh, Lancaster and Philadelphia, all in the northeastern state of Pennsylvania, along with Cleveland, Indianapolis and Detroit, had the worst year-round particle pollution.
