Classification Index pm10 pm2.5 The health effects should be based on 24 hours average values only.
 Good  1-50 < 54 μg/m3 < 12 μg/m3 Air quality is considered satisfactory, and air pollution poses little or no risk
 Moderate  51-100 < 154 μg/m3 < 35.4 μg/m3 Air quality is acceptable; however, for some pollutants there may be a moderate health concern for a very small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
 Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups  101-150 < 254 μg/m3 < 55.4 μg/m3 Members of sensitive groups may experience health effects. The general public is not likely to be affected.
 Unhealthy  151-200 < 354 μg/m3 < 150.4 μg/m3 Everyone may begin to experience health effects; members of sensitive groups may experience more serious health effects.
 Very Unhealthy  201-300 < 424 μg/m3 < 250.4 μg/m3 Health warnings of emergency conditions. The entire population is more likely to be affected
 Hazardous  301-500 > 424 μg/m3 > 250.4 μg/m3 Health alert: everyone may experience more serious health effects

What is Air Pollution?

The Clean Air Act requires the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to set National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for six common air pollutants - also known as "criteria pollutants." These are: carbon monoxide, lead, ground-level ozone, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter, and sulfur dioxide. These common air pollutants are found all and come from various sources such as coal-fired power plants, factories, cars, and trains. All of the criteria pollutants can be harmful to your health and the environment.
