Outdoor Air-Quality Regulations Take Effect Nov. 1
On Nov. 1, Lewis and Clark Public Health begins daily reporting of outdoor air quality in an effort to protect the health of area residents. We issue these reports each year from November through February, when temperature inversions are more likely to trap chimney smoke and vehicle exhaust in the Helena Valley, adding significantly to air pollution. The reports let you know the status of air quality and when you can use fireplaces or woodstoves. Find out how to get these air-quality status updates.
