Air quality info

With warm temperatures and lots of pollen, Boise's airshed has been a little murky these past few days. In fact, our air quality was only rated "moderate" today, and our particles count was as high as Los Angeles and higher than Las Vegas and Phoenix.

Click here to see current air quality conditions in Boise and here to compare our conditions with cities nationwide. On days with less-than-good air quality, we can all help by taking alternative modes of transportation, combining trips if we must drive, parking the lawnmower, and abiding by burn bans.

When I see the reports of the particle counts it always makes me wonder if we we could get breakdown of what the particulates actually are. If we knew what the contributors were then it'd be much easier to work on what to attack. Maybe it'd be an even distribution but I'd like to see that.

I enjoy your site and appreciate the work you do trying to get Boise moving forward.
