Massachusetts Emission Gradesheet

Return to Emission Homepage

Abstract: The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) compiles data on emission tonnages of air pollutants for US counties.  US Air Quality Gradebook ("AirGrades") emission gradesheets compare emission densities, in tons per square mile per year, for all measured counties in the

United States.  This gradesheet shows Massachusetts emission grades by county.  Grading A-F is on the bell curve, comparing the more than 3,000 US counties having EPA data on air pollution emissions.
