The Inland Northwest is getting hot, hot, hot! Record-breaking temperatures along with other air pollutants create a perfect melting pot to produce harmful ground-level ozone pollution!

During these hot summer days, emissions from motor vehicles, gasoline powered yard equipment, fumes from paints, solvents and industrial operations photo-chemically react in the presence of sunlight to create ground-level ozone pollution.

! CommuteSmartNW and Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency want your help to keep this troublesome pot of ground level ozone from boiling over. When you choose a commute option and practice clean air habits like using electric yard equipment, you help reduce ozone-forming emissions and improve our air quality.
