Arizona Department of Environmental Quality

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is extending today’s High Pollution Advisory (HPA) for ozone in Maricopa County through Wednesday, June 8.

ADEQ is extending today’s HPA because of continued stable atmospheric conditions in combination with abundant sunlight. Ozone levels are expected to exceed the federal health standard both today and tomorrow, June 7 and 8.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) has issued a Ozone High Pollution Advisory for tomorrow, May 11, for areas in and bordering Maricopa County.

ADEQ issues health watches and pollution advisories when the highest concentration of ozone or particulate matter levels may exceed the federal health standard.

People are encouraged to make voluntary efforts to limit activities that cause air pollution. People with respiratory or other health problems that make them more sensitive to air pollution are advised to limit their outdoor activity.
