The Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet recently announced the latest reduction in air pollution levels in the state. The agency released an air-quality distribution graph mapping out projections for reducing pollution levels in Kentucky at the Governor’s Conference on Energy and the Environment, The Courier-Journal reports.
"Despite the fact that our air quality is better than ever, there is always more work to be done. Kentucky will face new challenges in coming years to meet more stringent air quality standards and rules as required by the Clean Air Act," said John Lyons, the director of the Kentucky Division for Air Quality.
The news source claims the air quality improvements in Kentucky are due to regulatory and voluntary programs put in place by local, state and federal standards. While this is a positive trend, air pollution levels in Kentucky remain high. Homeowners wishing to improve the air quality in their house can purchase a home air purifier.
