This new year, let one of your resolutions be to help clean up Utah’s dirty air.
While we can’t do much about our geography, we can do something about the amount of emissions we’re putting into the air during our inversions.
During inversion conditions, as high pressure builds into the area, the mid atmosphere warms while the valleys stay cool. This warm air acts like a lid that traps pollution in the valleys.
To improve our air quality, we need to reduce the number of cars on the road.
If all drivers living along the Wasatch Front were to park their cars just one day per week, vehicle emissions would be reduced by 6,500 tons per year!
Do your part to Clear the Air, and take part in the Clear the Air Challenge.
Get your employees and co-workers involved and see how easy it is to reduce emissions and help Utah’s air.
The Clear the Air Challenge starts February 1st. To register visit cleartheairchallenge.org

Good news for Utah’s public schools, according to the Utah State Board of education – Utah’s public high school graduation rate has increased five years running.

Statewide, high school graduation rates are up 1 percent. Cypress high School was a standout with a graduation rate that climbed 11 percent between 2016 and 2017.
