Some Kentucky Counties Not Making The Grade For Air Quality

A report shows six Kentucky counties do not meet the Environmental Protection Agency’s new health standard for smog.

The EPA says Boyd, Christian, Greenup, Jefferson, Kenton and Oldham counties do not meet the new standard.

The new EPA standard will lower the allowable concentration of ozone in the air to no more than 75 parts per billion, compared with the old standard of 80.
