Minnesota posts new website mapping air quality

Read the full story in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The air around the Twin Cities and Rochester is pretty bad this week, thanks to a combination of heat, pollution, high barometric pressure and low winds.

And now, courtesy of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), there is a website that can tell you just how bad.

The MPCA’s new Air Quality Index website provides current air quality conditions for nearly the entire state, along with maps, graphs, and daily and monthly data summaries for 25 cities and five different air pollutants.
