Air Quality

The Association of Central Oklahoma Governments has been a leader in Central Oklahoma’s Air Quality Alert Day notices for more than 25 years.

Central Oklahoma Air Quality

The impact of transportation on Central Oklahoma’s quality air is a component of ACOG’s regional planning efforts. Since the establishment of comprehensive federal and state emission regulations by the 1970 Clean Air Act, research has continued to demonstrate the deep relationship between public health and air quality.

While ACOG is not a regulatory body and has no enforcement capabilities, it does work to assure compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s National Ambient Air Quality Standards through a variety of programs which serve to educate and affect the public’s capacity to work towards improved air quality in Central Oklahoma.
