The state of the air in Vanderburgh County improves
An American Lung Association "State of the Air" report gives Vanderburgh County passing grades for ozone and particulate levels. Head of Sustainability Dona Bergman says that for the first time, Vanderburgh County has been designated by the EPA as "in attainment" with a new, and stricter ozone standard. The Lung Association report reflects air quality from 2008 through 2010, and Vanderburgh County's grade improved from an "F" on the previous report to a "C" this time. Warrick County received a "C" while Posey County received a "B."
