The Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is a regional government group that collaborates on large projects with a 10 county area so projects aren't duplicated. Air quality is high on their list of priorities with their program Air Central Texas. Did you know that 50% of our air pollution comes from our tailpipe emissions? Is there anything you can do to minimize your impact on our air quality? Of course there is and creative solutions exist at Visit the site and what YOU can do to improve Austin's air quality.
