The American Lung Association’s annual “State of the Air Report” cites Santa Fe’s air as among the cleanest in the U.S.
The City Different (Santa Fe) ranked No. 1 for low ozone readings and 24-hour particle pollution. New Mexico’s capital city, Santa Fe,  ranked No. 2 for annual particle pollution. Honolulu tied Santa Fe in the same categories.
New Mexico’s largest city, Albuquerque, received good marks for annual particle pollution, but low marks for ozone readings and 24-hour particle pollution.
The report ranks the air in the Los Angeles/Long Beach/Riverside, Calif. area as one of the most polluted in the country.
For 12 years, ALA has analyzed data from state air quality monitors to compile the report.
