Inland Sheboygan County among 23 nonattainment redesignations in the Great Lakes States
US EPA - Today, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced that the Newport State Park area in Door County and the Inland area of Sheboygan County are now meeting federal air quality standards for ground-level ozone, which means cleaner and healthier air for Wisconsin residents.
“These beautiful areas of Wisconsin, home to more than 100,000 people and enjoyed by many more for their outdoor recreation opportunities, are part of a national trend of cleaner and healthier air. Under President Trump, Americans are breathing the cleanest air ever recorded and this all begins with tangible improvements in communities like Sheboygan and Door Counties,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler. “By working hand in hand with states to help them meet air quality standards, the Trump EPA is helping areas like Sheboygan and Door Counties breathe easier and improve local economies.”
