Air Quality

First, take a deep breath. Have you ever wondered how clean your air is? We have. And honestly, our air is something we're proud of.

You may have heard of the term ‘Air Quality Index,' but in case you haven't, it's basically a unit of measurement for air. Higher numbers signify an elevated level of air pollutants while lower numbers mean just the opposite. Breathing in bad air can trigger serious health-related issues, which is why it's important to understand what air you're breathing in.

In a study of the 100 Best Places to Live reported by CNNMoney.com, the average city rang in with over 280 days a year with good air to breathe. Spokane surpasses this with over 328 of days with good quality breathing air! Not only that, but we also been gaining about 8 good air days annually for the past three years.
