Cutting through the Smog


For decades, millions of Maryland residents, particularly those residing in and around Baltimore, have lived with poor air quality, leading to countless missed days of work and school, high rates of childhood asthma and emergency room visits, as well as premature death.

Though the state is moving toward attainment, it will need to continue to demonstrate compliance with the federal standard. Reducing building equipment pollution is one way to ensure Maryland maintains safe ozone levels.
