ABOUT AIR NORTH TEXAS
Air North Texas is a regional public awareness campaign and partnership that seeks to improve air quality in North Texas.
The campaign was formed by the North Central Texas Council of Governments with support of a task force made up of government agencies, nonprofit organizations, transportation authorities and others.
Air North Texas offers all North Texans, including individuals, businesses and governments, resources related to improving air quality. Air North Texas Annual Reports offer details about how the campaign is implemented.
Ten counties in North Texas fall under nonattainment for the pollutant ozone, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). North Texas must meet ozone emissions standards as set by the EPA or face federal sanctions. The Air North Texas campaign was created to help alleviate the air quality problem in our region.

North Texans are uniting to practice social distancing in the fight against COVID-19. While we are all doing our part to create healthy social spaces, we can double many social distancing strategies as clean air strategies on Ozone Action Days, which reduce ozone-causing pollution and protect our health and the environment.
