Air Pollution/Smog

Locally generated air pollution combined with a polluted stream of air from the Connecticut/Long Island/New York City region and the Mid-west blows into the valley each summer. Under the influence of hot weather and sunlight this mass of polluted air is converted to ozone and other airborne toxic chemicals. As a result the Pioneer Valley has some of the worst smog levels in New England.
  • Ground Level Ozone (Smog)
    The Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) New England Regional Office maintains information on smog - alerts, maps, background information, etc.

  • AirNow
    The EPA site for national ground-level ozone (smog) monitoring - downloadable publications.

  • Clean Water Action
    Grassroots organization working on local air pollution issues.
