... This is air quality awareness week...

This week Marks the beginning of ozone season for many areas in the
United States.

Today we highlight what you can do to make the air cleaner.

The environmental protection agency and state and local governments
work constantly to make the air cleaner across the country through
air quality standards and rules to reduce pollution from power
plants, industries, cars, diesel trucks, buses and construction
equipment. But you have a role to play too. Any time you use energy
whether it is gasoline, diesel, electricity or wood, you contribute
to air pollution in your community and communities downwind. Saving
energy reduces pollution and it can save Money.

Use the following guidelines to help keep air cleaner in your
community. You can help reduce pollution in your community by
following these guidelines. These recommendations are especially
important when ozone is expected to be unhealthy...

* choose a cleaner commute. Share a ride to work or use public
transportation. Combine errands and reduce trips.
* Delay using gasoline powered lawn and garden equipment until later
in the day or until days when the air quality is better.
* Limit engine idling.
* Get regular engine tune ups and car maintenance checks especially
the spark plugs.

You can help prevent or reduce unhealthy levels of particle
pollution with these actions.

* Reduce or eliminate fireplace and wood stove use.
* Avoid using gas-powered lawn and garden equipment.
* Avoid burning leaves trash and other materials.
* Replace your car's air filter and oil regularly.
