Statement as of 10:11 AM MDT on April 24, 2018


... High pollution advisory for Maricopa County including the greater
Phoenix area and Pinal County Wednesday...

The Arizona department of environmental quality in Phoenix has issued
an ozone high pollution advisory for the greater Phoenix area for
Wednesday. The Pinal County department of air quality has issued an
ozone high pollution advisory for Pinal County including Apache
Junction, Casa Grande, Coolidge, and Florence for Wednesday.

increase as air quality deteriorates.

telecommute or use mass transit.

The use of gasoline-powered equipment should be reduced or done late
