Review of Billings, Montana

why is the air soooo bad in Billings?
Star Rating - 5/24/2014
In looking at the air quality on here for Billings, I was quite surprised to see that the air quality was so bad. My father was looking at retiring there and thought it would good for his asthma but it doesn't look like it. Being by the mountains, I thought it would be a lot better than that.

Yes, the air is AWFUL! I have developed full blown asthma and cough. There is a fine layer of white dust all over my house, so I had to buy air cleaners. Thought it would be different here. The reason? Not sure, but my guess is ALL the factories surrounding the city. Propane, coal etc blowing garbage into the air. So if you have lung issues, not recommended.

Try red lodge for retirement. No air quality issues there.
