Monday kicks off National Air Quality Awareness Week.
This is the time of year when experts predict air quality levels before the summer months when it’s at its worst.
DEEP has some tips to help you do your part in reducing air pollution.
First, try carpooling more or driving less. Fewer cars on the road means less pollution in the air.
Next, avoid idling when you can.
And finally, if you have yard work to do, wait until the evening after the day’s peak temperatures.
