Thursday, May 28, 2015
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.
