I happened to go to the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Web site, www.pca.state.mn.us today to check on a press release I received and noticed a graphic showing today’s air quality.
Points all over Minnesota were marked in green depicting “good” air, but over Marshall was a big fat yellow marker showing “moderate.” Moderate is one down from good and one up from “unhealthy for sensitive groups.”
If you click on Marshall, it shows the air is pretty close to good, a 64, with 50 being in the good zone. “No health impacts are expected when air quality is in this range,” it says.
I wonder why the rest of the state is “good” and we are not so good? It’s probably the only time that Marshall is classified as “moderate.”
