WHEN...400 PM Friday July 10 to 1200 AM Saturday July 11

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,
Friday night, July 10, 2020.  Ozone concentrations have reached
levels that are Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. The highest
concentrations of ozone are anticipated in the Colorado Springs
area, as well as the Denver Metro area, particularly in the
southern and western suburbs, from Highlands Ranch to Golden.
Ozone concentrations are expected to be in the Good to Moderate

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
