Air Quality in Austin, Texas!

Ever wonder what the Air Quality Index is all about? CAPCOG, the Capital Area Council of Governments, represents 10 counties surrounding Travis County. They help multiple counties collaborate and plan for economic development, emergency preparedness, and air quality. Have you heard of ground level ozone? Austin actually has a season for it, March through November. Sensitive groups, young children with pre-existing conditions and our older population, should reduce exposure. Plus, we can try and reduce emissions. If you can, drive less, use electric, car-pool, and limit your time outside.
