Sunny days and high temperatures combined with ground pollution from automobiles and other sources can lead to high ozone levels in the metro area. High ozone levels can cause health problems for seniors, young children, and people with asthma.
The Regional Air Quality Council has a site with basic facts on ozone, tips on limiting ozone-producing emissions, and you can also sign up for ozone action email alerts.
For information on the state’s efforts to reduce ozone air pollution, visit the Department of Public Health and Environment’s Ozone page. Current air quality readings for Colorado can be found at http://apcd.state.co.us/psi/today.phtml, from the Air Pollution Control Division.
