Winter 2012–2013 worse than previous one in terms of air standard breaches

This winter has been considerably worse than the previous one in terms of the frequency with which permitted airborne dust levels have been breached in the Czech Republic, according to data released by the Ministry of the Environment. Between October 2012 and March this year there were only 48 days on which none of the country’s 53 smog warning stations did not record that dust levels had exceeded official limits. The previous winter there were 74 days on which no such problems were registered.
