Anchorage Air Quality Standards

The US Environmental Protection Agency has set air quality standards for six air pollutants. These are carbon monoxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, airborne lead, and two size categories of fine particulates called PM-10 and PM-2.5. Anchorage currently meets standards for all six of these pollutants. However, levels of PM-10, or course particulate, sometimes approach federal standards.
