Background:

The clean air campaign raises public awareness, presents possible solutions and implements voluntary transportation-related air pollution reduction actions. The campaign is a multi-faceted program that utilizes education, advertising, informational releases, special events and media relations to draw attention to the pollution situation in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. The counties served include: Boone, Butler, Campbell, Clermont, Hamilton, Kenton and Warren. The key to achieving air quality improvement lies in reaching and educating a large part of the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky public (during smog season which is typically May through September.)
