News for Senior Citizens

This page is under construction....stay tuned!

This page will document the risks to seniors from the surface level ozone pollution that is affecting so much of the Front Range, but especially Fort Collins. It will focus on several areas:

  • How much ozone has been measured as occurring in the Fort Collins area?

  • What levels of ozone are considered harmful to human health and the environment?

  • What other pollutants have been found by other monitoring stations in the Front Range?

  • What are the specific risks to senior citizens with regards to these types of pollution?
