ANR Issues Air Quality Alert

Current conditions could be unhealthy for sensitive groups


WATERBURY, Vt. - People with respiratory issues are advised to be aware
of a gradual buildup of air pollution in Vermont's valley areas due to a
combination of factors, including wood burning and weather conditions.


The relatively warm air hovering over colder, snow-covered ground has
led to a stagnant air condition which tends to cap the upward dispersion
of emissions from woodstoves, cars, trucks and other machinery.


The Department of Environmental Conservation requests owners of
wood-fired boilers to limit their use during these periods.  Outdoor
wood fired boilers tend to emit higher amounts of wood smoke and could
cause even higher pollutant concentrations, particularly in valley
locations.


In valleys where the air remains calm there is the potential for PM
concentrations to reach the EPA's 'elevated' level (30ug/m3).


For today, a possibility exists of experiencing pm2.5 levels at or above
the threshold in Rutland, and other mountain valley locations throughout
southern Vermont.  Later today, levels will likely drop somewhat as wind
speeds become higher.


People sensitive to air pollution should consider this when they plan
outdoor activity this afternoon, particularly in southern Vermont.


The Department of Environmental Conservation continuously monitors air
quality throughout Vermont and electronically reports this information
on a near real-time basis. This information is posted on the
Department's web site where it is publicly available via the Internet.
For current information on levels of air pollution in Vermont, go to
http://www.anr.state.vt.us/dec/air/ and select "Real time air quality
data."
