Statement as of 8:43 AM MDT on May 22, 2017


... High pollution advisory for Maricopa County including the greater
Phoenix area and Pinal County Monday and Tuesday...

The Arizona department of environmental quality in Phoenix has issued
an ozone high pollution advisory for the greater Phoenix area for
Monday and Tuesday. The Pinal County department of air quality has
issued an ozone high pollution advisory for Pinal County including
Apache Junction, Casa Grande, Coolidge, and Florence for Monday and

ozone levels are expected to result in local maximum 8-hour ozone
concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health effects
increase as air quality deteriorates.

Ozone is an air contaminant which can cause breathing difficulties
for children as well as persons with respiratory problems. A decrease
in physical activity is recommended.

If it is a regularly scheduled work day, you are urged to car pool,
telecommute or use mass transit.

The use of gasoline-powered equipment should be reduced or done late
