As the days heat up and we have more hours of daylight, ground level ozone concentrations begin to increase. Little things that we do can either add to those levels or help decrease them.

Ground level ozone can have a negative impact on your health, especially for those with chronic respiratory issues. We typically see high concentrations of ground level ozone through the summer and into the fall, until temperatures start to cool, and our hours of daylight start to decrease.
