New Ozone Regulations forthcoming

The Environmental Protection Agency announced plans to revise the ground-level ozone standards for the US, the new stricter standards will be the first revision since 1997 (from press release). Interested in seeing how your town ranks in the current standards? Check out these local maps from the EPA. Not all towns are monitored, but here in Colorado you can see data for the Denver metro area from 1990 to 2006.
