Ozone Action Day

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management has declared today an Ozone Action Day in Southwest Indiana.

An ozone action day means that a combination of the high temperatures…light winds…and other factors…are expected to produce conditions where high levels of ozone emissions…may exceed federally mandated standards.

Here are some way every one can help cut down on their Ozone forming emissions.

Ride the bus instead of taking your car.

Car-pool with a friend or co-worker.

Reduce the amount of time spent in drive thru lanes.
Postpone filling or topping off your gas tank until after dark.
Put off mowing your lawn until after 6:00 pm.
