About CAPCOG's Air Quality Program
CAPCOG's Air Quality Program provides technical assistance and information to area businesses, government entities and community groups on regional air quality issues, especially focusing on ground-level ozone pollution. Enabled through a grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, program efforts include operating air monitoring stations to better understand the sources and extent of regional air quality problems, estimating and modeling emissions and evaluating emission-reduction measures to develop effective strategies for the area. The Air Quality Program also supports the Central Texas Clean Air Coalition and the Clean Air Coalition Advisory Committee.
