Regional Air Quality Council
Our mission is to develop and propose effective and cost-efficient air quality planning initiatives with input from local government agencies, the private sector, stakeholder groups, and citizens of the Denver metropolitan area and the Denver Metro/North Front Range Ozone Non-Attainment Area. We plan and implement a variety of public outreach and education efforts. The RAQC assists with regional public/private initiatives to reduce emissions from the transportation sector, mobile sources, and other sources.
RAQC’s TV Meteorologist Advisory Group Collaborates on Communicating About Region’s Upcoming Ozone Season
The RAQC’s TV Meteorologist Advisory Group – with meteorologists from all local television stations and the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) – met to discuss the region’s upcoming ozone season and how best to communicate to their respective viewers the “Simple Steps to Better Air” we all can take to make a positive impact on our air quality.

The RAQC’s Simple Steps. Better Air. program has teamed up with Suffer Better – a Boulder-based non-profit that taps “the inexhaustible power, focus, dedication, and commitment of the endurance athlete community to work with and support local nonprofits and improve local communities” – to sponsor their annual event “Running Up For Air-Colorado” (RUFA-CO). RUFA-CO takes place March 9, 2019 near Evergreen, CO and is an endurance trail run, with runners committing to run for 3, 6 or 12 hours, to benefit POW Trail. Find out more about the event here.
What is the RAQC? Answers to this question, as well as what the RAQC does and the RAQC’s priorities, can all be found in our new digital overview booklet.
In an effort to keep interested stakeholders informed of current happenings with RAQC programs, partners, and air quality news and events, the RAQC created “The Air Monitor” quarterly e-newsletter. You can read the first issue here. If you are interested in subscribing to the newsletter, please contact Sara Goodwin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
