(Local Air Quality may not be as bad as they would have you believe)….The ‘They” is the American Lung Association. They released their annual Air Quality report this week. According to that report, Imperial County received a grade of F. The report said El Centro ranked ninth in the Nation’s top 25 as the most polluted for Particulate Matter and tenth in the Nation’s top 25 for worst in ozone levels. The local Air Pollution District says that report may not be entirely accurate. APCD Officer Brad Poireiz says the grade was expected. He said the association tends to use a very skewed methodology, grasping at the worst things out there to include in their report.
