Air Quality

Among communities in Cuyahoga County, the City of Cleveland has the most direct role in the outdoor air pollution issue, as the city’s Division of Air Quality runs the region’s air quality monitoring and permitting program under contract from Ohio EPA. But all communities can contribute to cleaner air.

What Communities Can Do?

  • Work with local health departments and NOACA’s Air Quality Program to provide information about the ways residents and businesses can reduce air pollution (both outdoors and indoors). v 
  • Prohibit unnecessary idling of city vehicles. A sample anti-idling policy from Cuyahoga County is here.
