Car emission inspections, nozzles on gas-station hoses and reformulated gasoline are all measures enforced by Missouri's Natural Resource Department to control air pollution. Air Quality Unit Chief Jeff Bennet says such controls improve air quality.

 Currently, Jefferson, St.Charles, St.Louis and Franklin counties, violate the Environmental Protection Agency's air pollution standards. However, state environmental engineer, John Rustige says the area is close to meeting the standard. The department expects the area to meet the EPA's air quality standards by 2010.
