Ozone and fine particulate matter are two of the most common and widespread air pollutants. While these pollutants are naturally present in outdoor air, certain areas can have elevated levels that become unhealthy. Fortunately, the air quality across the State of Florida is consistently ranked among the best in the nation with respect to ozone and fine particulate matter. The American Lung Association’s 2017 "State of the Air" report ranks 146 cities in 24 counties across Florida as among the cleanest in the country. In addition, all areas in the State meet the air quality standards for these pollutants and levels continue to decrease as they have for many years.
