Description This report describes a Department of Ecology (Ecology) analysis to quantify the health and monetary impacts of fine particle pollution in the state. The analysis was done by comparing estimates of the impacts at existing pollution levels to estimates of health effects at a “clean air” or background level.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
