Air Quality Alert for August 1

Tuesday July 31, 2007


An Air Quality Alert has been declared for Wednesday, August 1, 2007 for the Louisville area.

Ozone is expected to reach 104 on the Air Quality Index.

The Air Quality Index (AQI) is an index for reporting daily air quality.  It tells you how polluted your outdoor air is, and what associated health effects might be a concern for you.

At this level, the air is expected to be Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups.  Sensitive groups include active children and adults, and people with lung diseases, such as asthma.  These groups should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.

Local air quality affects how we live and breathe.  Like the weather, it can change from day to day.  To find current and forecasted air quality reports, click here or call 502-574-3319.
