Oklahoma meets EPA standards for fine particle pollution

Updated:
(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma meets air quality standards for fine particle pollution.

Fine particles have been linked to serious health problems, including aggravation of respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Fine particles are about 1-30th of the diameter of a human hair.

The US Environmental Protection Agency sent a letter to Governor Brad Henry Monday to tell him Oklahoma meets the fine particle standard.

EPA Regional Administrator Richard E. Greene is encouraging Oklahoma to continue making progress toward having clean air.
