04/29/2019 -- 2019 OZONE SEASON STARTS APRIL 29!

Air Quality Awareness Week (April 29 to May 3) marks the start of ozone season, which runs through September. The Air Quality Partnership monitors ozone levels, provides air quality forecasts, and offers tips you can take to reduce air pollution. Taking steps to reduce air pollution is critical because Greater Philadelphia does not currently meet the federal air quality standards for ground-level ozone.

You can help reduce air pollution. Consider:

  • Rethinking how you travel. Take transit, carpool, or ride a bike to your destination.

  • Cleaning out your trunk. An extra 100 pounds reduces your gas mileage by 2 percent.

  • Refueling in the evening. Ozone levels build through the day. Refuel after peak travel times.

  • Combining errands. Combine other trips with your daily commute to save time, money, and the environment.

  • Maintaining your car. A well-maintained vehicle emits less pollution and saves gas. Properly inflated tires improve your gas mileage by 3 percent, while regular oil changes improve your gas mileage by 1 to 2 percent.
