Hot Topic: Air Pollution Update
Increasing ozone levels and continued hot weather, along with intrusions of wildfire smoke and stagnant conditions triggered the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, Southwest Clean Air Agency and Lane Regional Air Protection Agency to issue an air pollution advisory on August 3
This advisory, for ground-level ozone (smog) and wildfire smoke, is expected to last through Tuesday, Aug. 8 but above-90 temperatures and a number of active wildfires conducive to increasing ozone and particulate matter levels are expected to linger through next week.
