Air quality outreach goes digital

Friday, October 21, 2016

CAPCOG launched a new online air quality campaign in September to help protect Central Texas residents from air pollution. While the region is in compliance with federal air quality standards, it can still have several days a year when air quality is still considered “unhealthy for sensitive groups.” The campaign includes a new “Air Central Texas” website, Facebook page, Twitter account, and electronic advertising designed to encourage residents to “Be Air Aware,” including tips on reducing emissions and exposure.

More than 1,000 residents visited the website in the last month, and CAPCOG’s Air Quality Program is routinely posting new air quality information on the social media accounts. CAPCOG expects to launch a Spanish-language version of the website in the next few weeks.
