Air Alert in Effect Through Wednesday

Air Alert in Effect Through Wednesday

Unusual late-season high temperatures and stagnant atmospheric conditions, combined with vehicle emissions, have prompted local air officials to declare the second Air Alert of the year, through Wednesday.

Air Alerts are declared Valley-wide when conditions are favorable for ozone levels to exceed the federal 1-hour ozone standard unless action is taken to prevent them from increasing.

“Thanks to the public’s understanding of this issue and their efforts to reduce emissions, we’ve had a good summer so far, and we’re on track for the first August and September ever with no one-hour ozone exceedances,” said Seyed Sadredin, the Air District’s executive director and air pollution control officer. “But we’re facing abnormal conditions this week and it’s critical to minimize our emissions.”
