Pollen and Mold

During pollen and mold season, the Southwest Ohio Air Quality Agency measures the daily levels of naturally occurring airborne pollutants: pollens and molds. These counts are expressed in grains per cubic meter of air for pollen levels and spores per cubic meter of air for mold levels. 

Please note: Wednesday, November 27 will be the last day pollen and mold counts will be available in 2019. Counting will resume in February 2020.
