EL PASO, TX — Yesterday, the Lone Star and Rio Grande Chapters of the Sierra Club submitted over 1,000 public comments to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) calling for action to bring El Paso into compliance with federal, health-based standards for ground-level ozone (“smog”) pollution. The comments come on the heels of years of community outcry about unacceptable levels of air pollution in the El Paso area, including a 2018 lawsuit filed by the Sierra Club and Familias Unidas del Chamizal. As a result of that lawsuit, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the EPA to address smog pollution in and around El Paso and southern New Mexico.
