Birmingham area meets air pollution standards for first time in 30 years

Posted: Updated:

The Alabama Department of Environmental Management says that the tri-county region consisting of Jefferson, Walker and Shelby counties air pollution rating hasn't been this good in 30 years. 

 The state asked the EPA to certify that the area was in compliance with regulations.

The improvement in air quality is a result of adherence to emissions guidelines put in place by government regulators.
