The Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) The PSI converts measured pollutant concentration in a community's air to a number on a scale from 0 to 500. The PSI number of 100, corresponds to the air quality standard established under the federal Clean Air Act. According to the U.S. EPA, a PSI level in excess of 100 means that a pollutant is in the unhealthy range on a given day, a PSI level at or below 100 means that a pollutant reading is in the satisfactory range.
