FERNANDINA BEACH, FL, April 29, 2019 (Local News) -The air in Nassau county is getting cleaner with the reduction of harmful Sulfur Dioxide pollution.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that it is taking final action to approve the state of Florida’s request to redesignate the Nassau County Area from nonattainment to attainment for the 2010 1-Hour Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) standard.

“Working in partnership with the state, we were able to achieve significant improvements in air quality in the Nassau County area,” said EPA Acting Region 4 Administrator Mary S. Walker. “Meeting the national sulfur dioxide standard is a critical step in providing a healthy environment for Nassau County citizens.”
