...Air Quality Advisory for Saturday, May 18th...

The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy
(EGLE) has declared an Air Quality Advisory for Saturday, May 18,
2024, for elevated levels of ozone in parts of west Michigan.
Pollutants within those areas are expected to be in the Unhealthy for
Sensitive Groups (USG, Orange AQI) range.

The Air Quality Advisory is in effect for the following west
Michigan counties:

Allegan, Kent, Muskegon, Ottawa, and Van Buren Counties

Ample sunshine, light winds with a southern component, and
increasing surface and upper-level temperatures, will make conditions
conducive for ozone development Saturday. The areas of greatest
concern are along the west Michigan lakeshore inland toward Grand
Rapids. The timing of highest ozone concentrations will be during
the mid-afternoon to early evening hours.

It is recommended that, when possible, you avoid strenuous outdoor
activities, especially those with respiratory diseases such as
asthma.

People and businesses are urged to avoid activities which can lead
to ozone formation. These activities include: refueling vehicles or
topping off when refueling; using gasoline powered lawn equipment;
using charcoal lighter fluid.

Positive activities include: driving less, telecommuting, walking or
bike riding, delaying or combining errands, using water-based
paints.
