...HIGH POLLUTION ADVISORY FOR MARICOPA COUNTY INCLUDING THE GREATER
PHOENIX AREA WEDNESDAY...

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality in Phoenix has issued
an Airborne Coarse Particle High Pollution Advisory for the Greater
Phoenix Area for Wednesday.

This means that ongoing stagnant weather conditions combined with
existing airborne coarse particle levels may result in local coarse
particle concentrations that pose a health risk. Adverse health
effects increase as air quality deteriorates.

Coarse particulate matter - also known as PM-10 - is an air
contaminant that can aggravate heart and lung disease conditions,
especially in older adults, children, and those with asthma. A
decrease in physical activity is recommended.

Consolidate your travel, stabilize loose soils, slow down or avoid
travel on dirt roads, reduce or eliminate fireplace use, and avoid
using gas-powered lawn equipment.

For details on this High Pollution Advisory for Maricopa County,
