Denver has some of the highest levels of hazardous air pollution in the country, and the problem is getting worse, a new report from the American Lung Association found.

The 2019 edition of the organization’s annual “State of the Air” report, released today, April 24, ranked Denver as the twelfth-worst out of 228 metropolitan areas for ozone pollution, which poses a wide variety of respiratory, cardiovascular and developmental health risks. That's two spots higher than last year's report.
