“The air soft as that of Seville in April, and so fragrant that it was delicious to breathe it.” – Christopher Columbus

These are the words Columbus wrote after his long voyage across the Atlantic. At Environics, we are always interested in air quality.  Our Ambient Air Calibration systems are used in the field to calibrate the analyzers that collect crucial data on the air around us.

Today, I discovered a great tool called “My Environment” which allows you to be more knowledgable about the air quality where you live.  Developed by the US EPA, the “My Air” tool allows you to see daily air quality (ozone levels, UV levels and radon levels) as well as compared to monthly and historical data.  You can also choose to see emissions data and areas which are non-compliant with current ozone standards.  You can see a snapshot of the results for our headquarters in Tolland, CT below.
