About National Ambient Air Quality Standards

On December 17, 1963 the Clean Air Act became effective; this is a United States federal law which regulates the level of air pollution that can occur nationally. Part of this act is the requirement that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) step up to provide realistic and safe regulations to protect US citizens against unhealthy levels of exposure to airborne contaminants. This is so effective, in fact, that it has been estimated by the EPA that the Clean Air Act will actually help prevent over 230,000 early deaths by the year 2020.

One of the largest sections of the act is the requirement of what is known as the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) – which sets "acceptable" levels of pollutants. For example, in regards to carbon monoxide, there is an average time of eight hours where the limit is set at nine parts per million (ppm) – this cannot be exceeded more than once per year. On the other hand, sulfur dioxide is set at 75 parts per billion (ppm) for an average time of one hour.
