"Wichita's Smog Violations Could Lead To EPA Rules"

"A byproduct of the ongoing heat wave, increased smog, may ultimately bring more and longer-lasting annoyance than the heat itself. The heat wave will eventually break, but Wichita’s smog reports probably already have been damaged to the extent of triggering some mandatory -- and potentially costly and inconvenient -- pollution controls like those in other big cities."

"Wichita has exceeded its ceiling for the pollutant ozone at least seven times this year, including Thursday and almost undoubtedly Friday."

Dion Lefler reports for the Wichita Eagle July 28, 2012.
