CHESHIRE West and Chester Council is supporting the first World Environmental Health Day on September 26.
It comes as the council has been ranked joint fourth out of 431 council web sites for its air quality information with five out of five for quality by Air Quality Bulletin. Last year the council was ranked sixth.
Councillor Lynn Riley, executive member for community and environment, said: “We take our role as environmental health practitioners very seriously, working to reduce the impact of air pollution and provide information and reassurance to our residents.
“This year on World Environmental Health Day we are highlighting the issue of air pollution and what we do to protect the public.
“Through the work of our local air quality groups we raise awareness of air quality which can affect community wellbeing and deal with the common perceptions that people have in relation to the air they breathe in their locality.
“Information provided through the Cheshire West and Chester Council Air Quality web pages gives factual information about the quality of air that we breath.”
The council has three monitoring stations in and around Ellesmere Port, one in Chester and a new one is coming on line in Helsby on Monday, September 26 to mark World Environmental Health Day.
