Mayor Pro Tem Paige Ellis Hosts Press Conference Commemorating Air Quality Awareness Week, Thursday May 4th

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has designated May 1-5, 2023 as National Air Quality Awareness Week. In 2022, Central Texas experienced its worst ozone season in over a decade. Children, older adults, pregnant people, and people with lung or heart disease are particularly vulnerable on days when ozone levels are unhealthy. The City of Austin recognizes how critical air quality is to the health of our environment, economy, and the daily lives of Austinites.
