Air Quality Index (AQI)

What is the Air Quality Index?

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a tool for reporting daily air quality. It tells you how clean or polluted your air is and what associated health effects might be a concern for you. The AQI focuses on health effects you may experience within a few hours or days after breathing polluted air. It takes all the monitored pollutants and relates them to a single-scale value to indicate air quality. See the AQI guide below for details.

Data collection is still being hampered by the impacts of Hurricane Ian at the Winkler Pump Station site and it will be restored as soon as possible.

Florida’s Air Quality System

Florida's Air Quality System (FLAQS) webpage provides up-to-date pollution data to the public. Nineteen different states, local and private air programs provide ambient air data to this system. They operate the state's ambient air monitoring network, routinely recording data 24 hours per day.
