The Des Moines Register‘s Perry Beeman and Chase Davis investigated air pollution in Iowa, particularly that made up of enough fine particles to come close to violating federal limits.

Beeman and Davis look at the major polluters, new federal pollution limits that are causing a push for increased testing and the possible health consequences of the state’s polluted air (related Q&A). The Register‘s package also includes an impressive interactive map showing major polluters.
