Air care

I am very pleased that a group of citizens has taken up the cause of our ozone pollution in western Nevada County. Perhaps a “critical mass” will coalesce around this important issue. I would remind your readers that there is pertinent information regarding our ozone and particulate matter pollution available from a report by the 2003-2004 Nevada County civil grand jury.

You can download the report from the following Web site: On the left side of the page, click on “Grand Jury Reports.” On the new page, where it says “term,” select 2003-2004 and click on “show selection.” On the new page, scroll down to “Public Health Protection” and click on “Air Quality.”

The report discusses the causes of ozone pollution in our county, it describes the great work performed by our local Air Quality District, and it offers specific recommendations for future actions.

Because the grand jury acts in an advisory and watchdog fashion, any recommendations must be addressed by our county Board of Supervisors. That’s where the buck stops. Good luck to the STA in NC group.
