Air Quality Awareness Week (AQAW)

May 1-5, 2023

Join Air Central Texas as we celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week 2023!

This year's theme is Working Together for Clean Air!

Air Quality Awareness Week is nationally recognized event in partnership with the EPA and other Federal agencies. During AQAW we highlights resources that increase air quality awareness and encourage people to take action and incorporate air quality knowledge into their daily living.

It's also opportunity for people to learn about what causes poor air quality and how to prepare for and respond to events and environments with poor air quality year-round!

Check out this year's featured topics and learn about the diverse and complex issues that relate to air quality. Air Central Texas also encourages the public to check the Air Quality Index (AQI) daily located at, to stay informed of current air quality levels.
