Lung Association releases 'State of the Air' report

Sedgwick County gets a passing grade in the latest "State of the Air" report, released today by the American Lung Association.

Its "ozone grade" was a B, meaning it had few high ozone days. It got a C for 24-hour particle pollution and a "pass" for annual particle pollution.

A year ago, the report gave Sedgwick County a C for ozone, a B for 24-hour particle pollution and a "pass" for annual particle pollution.
