Air monitoring: 2014 ozone season begins

Thursday, April 24, 2014

As April marks the beginning of the ozone season for the region, CAPCOG’s ozone monitoring network comes back online this month to help support regional air quality research and planning activities.

This year, CAPCOG will operate eight ozone monitoring stations in the region, including one each in Bastrop, Caldwell, Fayette and Travis counties and two each in Hays and Williamson counties.

These stations will help supplement the two regulatory monitoring stations operated by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in Travis County to provide a better picture of ozone within the region.

The next three-year period will likely prove crucial in maintaining the region’s status as compliant on federal ozone standards.

Efforts across the region to drive less, drive cleaner, conserve and know when ozone action days are forecast will help keep the air in Central Texas healthy.
