For the last 24 hours, the Air Quality Index (AQI) was GOOD, with a particulate reading of 20. The AQI is scaled from zero to 500. A reading of zero to 50 is defined as good; 51 to 100 is moderate; 101 to 150 is unhealthful for sensitive groups; 151-200 is unhealthful; 201 to 300 is very unhealthful; and 301 to 500 is hazardous. The Air Quality Forecast for today is a YELLOW DAY. No open burning is allowed on Yellow Days. The use of wood burning stoves that meet EPA or DEQ emission standards is allowed. Non-certified stoves should not be used unless that is the sole source of heat for your household.
