Natural, Historic & Cultural Resources
Virginia's goal is to protect, conserve and wisely develop our natural, historic and cultural resources.
- Virginia's air quality is within federal limits for all pollutants except ozone.
- Acres of preserved land have generally increased over time.
- The total amount of solid waste has grown in recent years while landfill capacity has decreased.
The natural, historic and cultural resources indicators help to assess the progress we are making, understand the key elements that influence the indicators, and clarify the role the Commonwealth is taking to sustain and improve our resources.
