Bangor Among Cleanest U.S. Cities for Air Quality

BANGOR - A new report shows that Bangor is one of the cleanest cities for air quality.

The American Lung Association released its 15th annual State of the Air report today, which ranks the Queen City as one of the four cleanest cities in the country.

Officials say the report looks at the two most widespread types of pollution: ozone, which is smog... and particle matter which comes from tailpipes, smokestacks, and wood fires.

While Penobscot County received a grade of "A" on the association's report card,  Portland and surrounding towns did not rank as well, showing Southern Maine continues to experience unhealthy levels of air pollution.
