City anticipates more Ozone Action Days

Tuesday, August 25, 2020 by Tai Moses

Ground-level ozone concentrations reached code orange in Austin last week, triggering an Ozone Action Day – which means potential breathing problems for seniors, kids, people with respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses, and those who have to work outside. The city urges all residents to be “air aware” and keep an eye on the forecast. Some things you can do to help the air – and your lungs – are to drive less, combine your errands into one trip, telecommute, refrain from mowing your lawn until after 6 p.m., and limit your use of electricity.
