The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) is challenging Hoosier citizens and businesses to take action to improve air quality during the Clean Air Indiana Action Challenge, June 15 through 30. These last two weeks of June have historically experienced high levels of ground-level ozone pollution (smog), which is formed when gas vapors and emissions bake in the hot, summer sun. When ozone levels are high, it can be difficult for anyone to breathe, but especially sensitive groups, such as children, the elderly and those with heart and lung problems.
You can help make Indiana a healthier place to live and work this summer by pledging to make simple changes in your daily routine and following the air quality tips on this Web site. Each small action, such as mowing the lawn after 7 p.m. or carpooling to work, can have a big impact on our air quality. If we all work together, we can improve air quality in Indiana. By pledging to take action, you are agreeing to do your part to reduce ground-level ozone pollution this summer. Remember, it’s your choice, your air, your future Indiana!
