Ambient Air Quality Standards
Air quality standards are estabished to protect even the most sensitive individuals in our communities. Air quality health protective standards are set by the California Air Resources Board and the Federal Environmental Protection Agency. These standards indicate the maximum amount of a pollutant that can be present in outdoor air without harm to the public's health.
The standards are pollutant specific and have two components; a pollution concentration value, and a time period of exposure. For example, the State standard for particulate matter 10 microns in size and smaller is 50 micrograms per cubic meter over a 24 hour time period (50ug/m3). The standards are designed to be conservative and, as such, are set at levels sufficient to protect a wide seqment of the population from health effects. The ambient air in portions of the District exceeds the State PM10 standard during many of the winter months.
