WHAT...Ozone Action Day Alert.

WHERE...Douglas, Jefferson, Denver, western Arapahoe, western
Adams, Broomfield, Boulder, Larimer, and Weld Counties

WHEN...400 PM Saturday August 08 to 400 PM Sunday 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. Sunday, August 9, 2020.  Ozone concentrations are expected to
be in the Moderate to Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups range on
Saturday and Sunday. The highest concentrations of ozone are
expected for locations in the southern and western portions of the
Denver Metro area on Saturday. On Sunday, this area expands
northward along the Front Range to include 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
