Atlanta Achieves Attainment With 1-Hour Ozone Standard.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced it has redesignated the metropolitan Atlanta, GA area as in attainment with the one-hour air quality standard for ground-level ozone for the first time since 1978.

The agency said its decision to redesignate the area to attainment is based on air quality monitoring data for the 2002 through 2004 ozone season.

The EPA noted that the state of Georgia has adopted a broad strategy designed to improve air quality, including requiring vehicle emissions testing and the sale of low-sulfur gasoline in most of north Georgia, as well as encouraging cars and vanpools, use of mass transit, staggered work hours and teleworking.
