Air Quality Action Day Tomorrow – June 28th

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) has declared that tomorrow June 28th is an Air Quality Action Day in our region for Particulate Matter (PM 2.5). 

High levels of fine particulates are forecasted and the Air Quality Index is expected to be in the Unhealthy range. Current air monitor readings across the state are rising as the Canadian wildfire plume moves from north to south.

Currently, the Air Quality Index is Very Unhealthy at 227. Forecast models are all pointing toward very high levels today and Wednesday. More information can be found on the Air Now Fire and Smoke Map.



Particulate Matter (PM 2.5)


Fine particulate matter settles deep into the lungs and cannot be easily exhaled.

Everyone should reduce or avoid exertion and heavy work outdoors during these conditions. Sensitive groups are particularly at risk after several days of exposure to high particulate levels.

Do your part to help clean the air by taking action!

  1. Bike, Walk, carpool, or take the bus
  2. Perform regular vehicle maintenance
  3. Conserve fuel by combining trips
  4. Refuel your car in the evening
  5. Reduce engine idling time
