Air Quality Advisory Issued For Smoke and Ozone For July 4 Through July 5 Due to Fireworks

Clark County Department of Air Quality (DAQ) is issuing an advisory that will be in effect from Friday, July 4, through Saturday, July 5, for potentially elevated levels of smoke and ozone over the Independence Day holiday due to local fireworks.  Air Quality officials say smoke is made of small dust particles and other pollutants that can aggravate respiratory diseases and contribute to ground-level ozone formation.
 
At this time, unhealthy levels of air pollution are not occurring. Air Quality officials will continue to monitor conditions and will post an alert on the forecast page of the DAQ website if unhealthy levels actually occur. Detailed air quality conditions are posted in the monitoring section of the DAQ website. A link to the forecast page is located at http://redrock.clarkcountynv.gov/forecast/.
