The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has issued an Ozone Action Day for the Austin area for Tuesday, April 9, 2019.

Atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing high levels of ozone air pollution in the Austin area on Tuesday. You can help prevent ozone pollution by sharing a ride, walking or riding a bicycle, taking your lunch to work, avoiding drive-through lanes, conserving energy, and keeping your vehicle properly tuned.
