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.  For Colorado air quality

with lung disease, such as asthma. Active children and adults, and
people with lung disease, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged
