...OZONE ACTION DAY ALERT FROM 400 PM MONDAY UNTIL 400 PM TUESDAY... The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has issued the following... WHAT...Ozone Action Day Alert. WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties WHEN...400 PM Monday August 08 to 400 PM Tuesday August 09 IMPACTS...Ozone Action Day Alert is now in effect for the Front Range Urban Corridor. Requests to limit driving of non-ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel) are now in effect until at least 4 p.m. Tuesday, August 9, 2022. Hot and sunny weather with light winds will allow ozone concentrations to reach levels that are Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups on Tuesday. The highest concentrations of ozone are most likely for locations in the southern and western portions of the Denver Metro area, as well as northward along the Front Range and lower foothills to include western portions of Boulder, Longmont, and Fort Collins. For areas included in this advisory that are not expected to reach the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups (USG) air quality designation, we request that activities, such as driving non- ZEV vehicles (i.e., gas or diesel), be reduced to lessen the impacts on neighboring air quality. Additional air pollution in this region may directly worsen air quality or contribute to precursors which may also adversely affect air quality.
