Air quality challenges exist in areas across Georgia. That’s why The Clean Air Campaign is working in more regions throughout the state, providing resources to help employers and employees so we can all breathe easier.
Tighter Pollution Standards Introduced in 2012 Could Put More Georgia Cities at Risk of Nonattainment
At different times in the past, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has classified as many as 27 counties in Georgia as nonattainment areas for ground-level ozone and/or particle pollution.
Presently, the air over Bibb, Clarke, Murray, Muscogee and Richmond counties is considered by the EPA to meet the standards for attainment, but these areas are at risk in the future of falling into nonattainment status, as tighter standards could be introduced to further limit ground-level ozone and fine particle emissions from stationary and mobile sources.

We’re Ready to Help
The Clean Air Campaign is now working with government agencies, employers, schools and residents in Athens-Clarke County, Central Savannah River Area (CSRA), Chattahoochee Valley, Northwest Georgia and Middle Georgia to help these areas take a proactive stance by:
- Educating these groups about Georgia’s air pollution problems
- Connecting employers and employees with commute options programs that help reduce traffic and improve air quality
- Providing tools that schools can use to educate students about air quality and decrease traffic congestion and emissions around their campuses.
