Ohio Sees Significant Improvement in Air Quality

Air quality across Ohio, as measured by fine particle pollution, has improved significantly in recent years. An Axios report includes an interactive map that shows air quality changes in Ohio’s largest cities since 2015, based on U.S. EPA data.

As an example, Cleveland saw a 22% decline in air pollution levels from 2015 to 2021, and a 47% decline since 2000.

Despite this progress, the U.S. EPA wats to further reduce its fine-particle pollution standards — a move opposed by the OMA, as previously reported. 5/2/2023
