Split view of clear and hazy days in Shenandoah National Park.

If you climb the mountain, you want to see the view.  That’s why the Clean Air Act includes a special program to cut haze and protect visibility in national parks and wilderness areas. 

States whose air pollution impacts parks submit plans to the EPA. These plans are supposed to protect the view, and protect health, too. The plans require advanced technology to cut pollution, and a long-term strategy that will restore natural visibility.
