Air Quality Index (AQI)

 Environmental Quality, Office of Environmental Compliance

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that air quality reports be provided by state and local agencies, using EPA`s Air Quality Index (AQI). The AQI is a uniform index that provides the public with timely and easy-to-understand information on local air quality and whether air pollution levels pose a health concern. The Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) has established an online tool to locate air quality information for various regions of the State at: http://airquality.deq.louisiana.gov/

Any questions about interpreting this monitoring data should be directed to the DEQ Customer Services Section at 1-866-896-5337.
