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 Thursday June 17 to 1200 AM Friday June 18

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 midnight,
Thursday night, June 17, 2021.  Ozone concentrations are expected
to be in the Moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range on

locations within the Denver Metro area, particularly in the
western and southwestern suburbs. Ozone is expected to be in the
Good to Moderate range on Friday.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
conditions, forecasts and advisories, visit:

and breathing discomfort in active children and adults and people
