Follow-Up Report on Florida's Outdoor Air Quality Programs, Report No. 98-21, November 1998
Full report in PDF format

  • Florida has had no official violations of any of the National Air Quality Standards, thus Florida's overall air quality is reasonably good. However, revised federal ozone standards and elevated readings of ozone during 1998 have created concerns about Florida's future air quality compliance. The Department of Environmental Protection reports that it will not know for certain if counties with a history of ozone problems will be redesignated as non-attainment areas until the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency makes that determination in the year 2000.
