Air

Tasmania has some of the cleanest air in the world. Yet we can have significant air quality problems, especially with smoke from planned burning and domestic wood heating, in and around the major urban centers and during cold clear nights in the cooler months. The complex mixture of pollutants from many different sources in the air we breathe can result in serious health issues when concentrations are elevated. The EPA Division is committed to improving air quality in our urban and rural areas.
