Air Quality Advisory for Boise County Lifted

DEQ is lifting an Air Quality Forecast & Caution

Date/Time Issued: Tuesday, September 6, 2016/ 11:00 a.m.

Due to lessening smoke impacts from regional wildfires, the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has lifted an Air Quality Forecast and Caution for Boise County. Air quality is currently in the GOOD category and is forecast to remain in the Good to Moderate category with hourly values ranging from the Green/Good to the Orange/Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups. The pollutant of concern is Fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5).

Health Impacts and Recommended Actions

When air quality is good, air quality is considered satisfactory and air pollution poses little or no

risk. When air quality is moderate, air quality is acceptable; however, people who are unusually

sensitive to air pollution may experience health impacts and should consider reducing prolonged heavy exertion.

Outdoor Burning Restrictions

Open burning restrictions have been lifted in accordance with the Rules for the Control of Air Pollution in Idaho (IDAPA 58.01.01.550).
