Air Quality Alert

Air Quality Alert
National Weather Service Phoenix AZ
1023 AM MST Mon Aug 20 2018


The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality in Phoenix has issued
an Airborne Coarse Particle High Pollution Advisory for the Greater
Phoenix Area for Monday and Tuesday.

An episode of strong and gusty winds is forecast to generate
widespread blowing dust that may result in local coarse particle
concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health effects
increase as air quality deteriorates.

Coarse particulate matter - also known as PM-10 - 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.

Consolidate your travel, stabilize loose soils, slow down or avoid
travel on dirt roads, reduce or eliminate fireplace use, and avoid
using gas-powered lawn equipment.

For details on this High Pollution Advisory for Maricopa County,
visit the ADEQ internet site at or call 602-771-2300.
