Ozone Action Day – August 10th

It is important that local governments, businesses, and the general public take action to voluntarily lower pollutant emissions on Ozone Action days when high levels of ozone are expected since breathing high concentrations of ozone can lead to a variety of health problems.

Here are four simple ways to help keep the air clean on Ozone Action days:

1) Delay mowing your lawn until evening or the next day. Exhaust from your lawn mower and other gas-powered lawn and garden equipment help form ozone.
2) Avoid refueling your vehicle during daylight hours. Fumes released at the gas pump contribute to ozone formation.
3) Limit travel. If possible, carpool, vanpool, take public transit, walk, bike, or telecommute on Ozone Action days.
4) Reduce electricity use. Adjust your thermostat a few degrees higher and turn off lights, computers, and other electrical devices when not in use.
