Nanyang recorded 25 days with excellent or fine air quality in its urban region in May, an increase of 14 days. The average concentrations of PM2.5 and PM10 were 39 micrograms per cubic meter and 86 micrograms per cubic meter, respectively, ranking second in the province. The 10 water sections that were monitored all met the quality standard.

The significant improvement in the city's natural environment cannot be set apart from the measures Nanyang has taken this year to investigate and treat major pollution problems, such as dust pollution.
