The Texas Department of Environmental Quality issued an Ozone Action Day for the El Paso Area.

This alert is expected to expire at 8 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 24.

This means atmospheric conditions, which included calm winds and clear skies, are favorable for producing high levels of ozone pollution in the El Paso area.

This will mainly affect people who suffer from asthma, and are encouraged to limit their time outdoors. 

A very simple way to prevent ozone pollution is by sharing a ride, walking, riding a bicycle or simply taking your lunch to work. This is all in an effort to conserve energy.
