Why Have Federal CLEAN AIR Standards?? 28 HPAs So Far This Year Here In Maricopa County

Ozone Air Pollutant . . . Man-made QUESTION: Who's gonna fix it?    

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) is issuing an ozone High Pollution Advisory (HPA) for Maricopa County, effective Friday, June 23, 2017. This HPA is due to ozone levels expected to accumulate enough to exceed the federal health standard for ozone.
People most affected by ozone include children, senior citizens, people who work or exercise outdoors and people with pre-existing respiratory disease. Ozone can irritate the respiratory system, aggravate asthma and reduce the immune system’s ability to fight off respiratory infections. Ozone-related health problems include shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, headaches, nausea, and throat and lung irritation.
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) provides a daily forecast for air quality and issues HPAs or Health Watches when these conditions exist.
