Air quality impacts all of us; from the very young, to the very old, and everyone in between. Clean and healthy air is one of the many things we require in order to live long and healthy lives. One of our priorities at Lincoln County Environmental Health is to monitor ambient air quality so that we may keep the citizens of Lincoln County informed about the ever changing conditions, and how those conditions effect the way we all live, work, and play here in Northwest Montana.
