About this Event
The luncheon will feature a panel discussion on San Antonio’s Air Quality, Ground Level Ozone, and Climate Challenges. San Antonio is currently not meeting federal minimum air quality standards for ozone. Why do we have high ozone levels and what can we do about it? How does this affect our community’s health and what are the financial costs to comply with federal standards? What does climate change have to do with air quality, and what is San Antonio doing about climate change? Find out the answers to these questions and more at our upcoming luncheon.
