While 2013-2019 had some of the hottest years on record, that period also held six of the seven LOWEST ozone concentrations! Find out why by reading about recent air quality and ecosystem improvements.

Under the Clean Air Act, EPA implements several regulations that affect power plants, including the Acid Rain Program (ARP), the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) and the CSAPR Update, and the Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS). These programs require fossil fuel-fired electric generating....
