Worcester Ranked City with Best Air Quality in Massachusetts

Thursday, May 28, 2015

 

The city of Worcester ranks as the city with the best air quality in Massachusetts. Worcester ranks #144 in the United States and #1 overall in Massachuetts due to low levels of ground level ozone. 

According to FindtheBest.com, Worcester's ground level ozone is .07 ppm (parts per million). Ground level ozone is the main component of smog, and breathing this type of ozone can lead to short-term and long-term respiratory problems, such as chest pain, asthma, or bronchitis.

FindtheBest gathered its information from data from the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA records and shares data based on six possible pollutants for all major cities in the U.S. The EPA has also grouped certain cities that are in close proximity to one another into one entity - resulting in combined pollutant levels across each individual city.
