Last month’s review

July was a clean month like most spring and summer months. Thanks to this great weather, all days were in the “good” category at our Chinatown-International District air monitor.

In fact, the last time our air quality was measured in the “moderate” range was earlier this year on May 2nd.

Did you know?

Electric cars don’t need oil changes (or gasoline). Conventional cars and trucks, including hybrids, can discharge oil, which is harmful to the fish and other wildlife as stormwater runoff goes into drains, creeks, and eventually Puget Sound. Electric cars also don’t produce air pollution!
