Georgia EPD Unveils Air Quality Website

The website provides smog alerts and real-time monitoring data with which Georgia residents are familiar and adds information about individual air pollutants and their impacts.

The Ambient Monitoring Program of the Georgia Environmental Protection Division's Air Protection Branch has created a newly designed and reconfigured website devoted to Georgia's air quality: AirGeorgia.org.

"Accessing air quality information in Georgia has never been easier. The new website was revised with the needs of Georgia citizens in mind. Real-time air quality data, as well as information on long-term air quality trends, is readily available," said Karen Hays, chief of EPD's Air Protection Branch.

The website provides smog alerts and real-time monitoring data with which Georgia residents are familiar and adds information about individual air pollutants and their impacts. "The new format provides a wealth of information in a visually appealing way," according to the agency. "It is easily accessible to students, teachers and citizens who wish to gain a better understanding of air quality in Georgia, while preserving useful technical content for scientists and researchers."

The site will feature information about historical air quality trends, annual reports, ozone exceedance reports, wildfires and their impacts on air quality, and more.
