Air Quality - Ozone Watch


First Ozeone Watch Day of the season called for Friday, July 12.


Government entities are requested to modify their work procedures on Friday, Julv 12, 2013.This is
the First Air Quality Alert Day of the Ozone Alert Season, which runs from May to September.

Our region is perilously dose to exceeding federal standards for ozone. There. is great concern over the
air quality
readings to date for the area due to persistent weather conditions of hot temperatures and
little wind
combined with vehicle emissions, petroleum distillate vapors, and solvent fumes. It is
imperative that government
 entities take steps to reduce the ozone level and to set the example for
- or warnings will be disregarded by all.

On Friday government entities are encouraged to help lower the ozone levels, set the example:

  •          DO NOT MOW, USE WEED EATERS OR CHAINSAWS. etc. - Sunlight increases the effect of two- cycle engine emissions on ozone levels .
  •          AVOID USING HYDROCARBONS - l.e. inside/outside paint, wood stains, adhesives, petroleum distillates, solvents, etc. Rule of Thumb: "If it makes your eyes water/nose burn don't use it,"
  •          Turn off the vehicle's air conditioner on morning commutes when it's cooler. Refuel in the early morning hours. Eliminate unnecessary vehicle trips - e.g, save "gopher" trips for another day.
    Drive 60 miles-per-hour, or less, on the
    highways. Turn off engines while stopped for a train or
    other waiting periods.
