The officials at the Indiana Department of Environmental
Management have called for an Ozone Action Day on Sunday, August
20 for the following Indiana counties...

Jackson, Daviess, Greene, and Knox.

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 recommended actions that the public can take to reduce
ozone forming emissions:

     * Walk, bike, carpool or use public transportation.
     * Avoid using the drive-through and combine errands into one trip.
     * Avoid refueling your vehicle or using gasoline-powered lawn
       equipment until after 7pm.
     * Turn off your engine when idling for more than 30 seconds.
     * Conserve energy by turning off lights or setting the air
       conditioner to 75 degrees or above.
