In Cook County, Illinois, local administrators are closely examining air quality levels after collecting data about particles, smog and toxic chemicals. According to Medill Reports, Cook County Environmental Control officials want to determine if air quality has improved throughout the region since 2011.
"A lot of this data is actually coming from our work and we're very proud of that," county Environmental Control representative Deborah Stone told the news source.
Stone noted that the information could significantly affect the county's future air quality policies. In fact, research showed that there was an 8 percent decrease in toxic air pollutants in Cook County in 2011, thanks in part to area officials' dedication to complying with Clean Air Act regulations.
Additionally, county Environmental Control officials are working with members of various departments to ensure that they put pollution limits on heavy-emission diesel vehicles that are commonly used by construction and maintenance companies. With new regulations in place, Cook County administrators could further enhance air quality levels across the area.
