Roseville Region Air Quality Among Worst in Nation


Roseville, CA- As we've reported over the years, the Roseville region offers many reasons as an attractive place to live and do business.  Sadly, air quality is not one of those reasons according to the American Lung Association.

The American Lung Association released their Annual State of the Air report and once again, Roseville- Sacramento region residents are breathing some of the worst air in the United States.

Ranking 5th worst in the country, just ahead of Fresno-Madera region and behind Houston, Texas, Roseville-Sacramento region joins other California locations for a spot on the unflattering Top 10 List.

With another building boom underway and roadways becoming more clogged by the minute, we can probably expect to see the region maintain its poor ranking for the foreseeable future.

High risk groups most affected often include those with pediatric asthma, cardiovascualar issues, diabetes, as well as young children and those over 65.

According to the American Lung Association, Placer County receives an "F" for  Ozone and 24-Hour Particle Pollution.
