Start of 2021 Ozone Season
Presentation

The 2021 ozone season began on March 1 and runs through November 30, 2021. The Dallas-Fort Worth region does not meet attainment for federal air quality standards for the pollutant ozone. NCTCOG staff will present an introduction to the pollutant, an overview of current progress, an ozone season update, and strategies to help reduce air pollution and reach attainment.

Car Care Awareness
Presentation

NCTCOG educates citizens about vehicle maintenance and informs them about how they can contribute to the regional air quality solution by keeping their vehicles in good condition. Not only can proper maintenance save them money, but it also keeps the vehicle from polluting excessively by advising what to do if the check engine light illuminates.
