PDF icon The air we breathe 2017 (lraq-1sy17)

Minnesota’s air quality is better than all national standards and nearly all other health-related measures. However, scientists are learning that air pollution is harmful at even lower levels than was previously understood. The MPCA will continue working to reduce air pollution from industrial and other large sources through our traditional regulatory methods, and by collaborating to find new ways to reduce emissions. Our future success will depend on all of us making choices that help limit emissions. Ensuring that all Minnesotans have clean air to breathe will mean we all need to take action to reduce our contributions to air pollution.
