Alert:
...HIGH POLLUTION ADVISORY FOR MARICOPA COUNTY INCLUDING THE GREATER
PHOENIX AREA SATURDAY, SUNDAY AND MONDAY
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality in Phoenix has issued
an Airborne Fine Particle High Pollution Advisory for the Greater
Phoenix Area for Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.
This means that ongoing stagnant weather conditions combined with
existing airborne fine particle levels may result in local fine
particle concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health
effects increase as air quality deteriorates.
Fine particulate matter - also known as PM-2.5 - is an air
contaminant that can aggravate heart and lung disease conditions,
especially in older adults, children, and those with asthma. A
decrease in physical activity is recommended.
This is a no burn day. Fireplace use and outdoor burning is
prohibited. Consolidate your travel and avoid using gas-powered lawn
equipment.
