SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Citizens concerned with air pollution in Wasatch Front communities are mobilizing to fight the problem.

The Utah Clean Air Alliance was formally organized yesterday during a Salt Lake County air quality summit. The group melds a handful of organizations working on similar issues into one, focused alliance.

First on the organization's agenda: strategies for lobbying lawmakers during the next legislative session and plans for legislation to improve air quality.

Other ideas include statewide pollution education programs and a proactive "Red Alert Plan" to help residents change their behavior and reduce the number of poor air-quality days.
