Air Quality Reports
MARC tracks local ozone monitor readings and provides data summaries to the community. These annual reports cover violations of the Environmental Protection Agency’s health-based standard for ozone in the Kansas City region and contain summaries of seasonally issued SkyCasts. For questions related to ozone data, please call 816/474-4240.
Each year, MARC conducts a survey of residents in the metropolitan Kansas City area. This survey evaluates residents’ awareness of quality issues and participation in air quality improvement actions.
