Air Quality Alert for September 2

Tuesday September 2, 2008

An Air Quality Alert has been declared for Tuesday, September 2, 2008 for the Louisville area.

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.

The air quality index is expected to reach 112. The determining pollutant is ground level ozone.

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.

Local air quality affects how we live and breathe.  Like the weather, it can change from day to day.

Help the air on Air Quality Alert days with these simple steps:

  • Share a ride.
  • Delay your mowing.
  • Combine your errands.
