The Agency provides pollen and mold counts as a public service each year from February through November. Counts are performed Monday through Friday. The sampler is located at the Agency’s office and it captures a sample one minute in each ten minutes for a 24-hour period. Residents who suffer from allergies may find the counts helpful for tracking symptoms that correspond with the prevalent allergens of that day.

April has seen several "Very High" pollen days. To date, April 23 is the spike day with a pollen count of 3450, driven by the pollination of oak trees (2018). You can find daily pollen counts at SouthwestOhioAir.org

Congratulations to Summit Country Day for going idle-free. Thanks to the leadership of several students, their campus now has several "Idle Free Zone" signs that remind parents, staff, visitors, and students to turn of their engines when they arrive at school. Reducing unnecessary vehicle emissions can help improve air quality on campus. 

You can order our free "Idle-Free Zone" signs by visiting SouthwestOhioAir.org.
