The Pollution Prevention Partnership (P3) started in 1995 to address air quality issues in Corpus Christi, an ozone near-nonattainment area. The Pollution Prevention Partnership delivers a broad range of environmental assistance programs and services including environmental education, pollution prevention, and environmental compliance assistance to citizens, schools, businesses, industry, and governments throughout the Coastal Bend.  P3 and AutoCheck are operated by Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi Office of Research Engagement and supported by the Port of Corpus Christi Authority.

Ozone Action Day tips!

Days when ozone is expected to be high:

  • Refuel cars and trucks after dusk.
  • Combine errands and reduce trips.
  • Limit engine idling.
  • Choose a cleaner commute—share a ride to work or use public transportation. Bicycle or walk to errands when possible.
  • Use household, workshop, and garden chemicals in ways that keep evaporation to a minimum, or try to delay using them when poor air quality is forecast.
  • Conserve electricity and set your air conditioner at a higher temperature.
