 Air Quality Advisory Remains in Effect for the Nez Perce Reservation

The Air Quality Advisory issued for the Nez Perce Reservation remains in effect through 10:00am Friday, September 18th, 2020, when conditions will be reassessed. Wildfire smoke from the Sunnyside Complex and fires in California/Oregon/Washington will continue to impact our region this week. Smoke may move in and out of the area depending on fire and wind activity; some areas may be more impacted than others. No EPA/NPT burn permits will be approved.

Air quality is currently ranging from the “Unhealthy” to the “Hazardous” categories of the Air Quality Index. To track regional air quality, visit the Idaho Smoke Blog or the AirNow Website. For AQI health-related information, visit: AQI Basics

  • Infants, children, pregnant women, elders
  • People who have high exposure (those who work, exercise, or spend extensive time outdoors)
  • People with existing health conditions or chronic diseases like asthma, emphysema, bronchitis, heart disease, COPD or diabetes.
