The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency has announced stricter ozone standards and Oswego County is one of 14 New York counties that fails to meet the new clean air standard. The new standard will lower the allowable concentration of ozone in the air to no more than 75 parts per billion, compared with the old standard of 80. WTVH reporter Chuck Plumpton asked ESF Professor Theodore Dibble what this means for Oswego residents.
