SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- Sheboygan County officials hope to boost the county's air quality ratings by taking measurements farther from the shores of Lake Michigan.
Sheboygan Press Media reports the county has regularly had the worst air in the state.
But officials say that's because pollution floats north along Lake Michigan from Chicago. Sheboygan County, which is north of Milwaukee, gets hit worse than other areas because it extends farther out into the lake.
The county has been monitoring air quality at Kohler Andrae State Park, which sits on the lakeshore. It will soon begin testing air inland at a station located off state Highway 42 in the Town of Mosel.
