The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has declared that today Saturday June 3 is an Air Quality Action Day in our region for Ozone.
After a brief respite after Thursday’s much needed rain, hot weather continues through the weekend and ground-level ozone more readily forms on warm, sunny days. For current conditions and the air quality forecast, visit IDEM SmogWatch.
