Dallas-Fort Worth gets a failing grade again for its air quality, study finds



DALLAS, TX— The air across Dallas-Fort Worth remains unhealthy to breathe, the American Lung Association found.

Collin, Dallas, Denton and Tarrant Counties all have a high level of ozone pollution, for which each got an “F” grade in the State of the Air 2021 report.

And the quality of the air has actually gotten worse over the past year, the report found. The number of unhealthy days of high ozone went up year-over-year in cities across Texas, including Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and El Paso.
