State declares Clean Air Action Day for eight Western Michigan counties

(Lansing, MI) – Eight western Michigan counties are under a Clear Air Action Day declared by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy. Allegan, Barry, Cass, Kent, Muskegon, Oceana, Ottawa and Van Buren counties are part of the advisory, as ozone will form in large enough quantities to cause problems for people who are sensitive to it. EGLE is urging people not to fill up their gas tank during the day, use gas-powered lawn mowers, light a fire or put lighter fluid on a charcoal grill.

They also recommend staying indoors with the windows closed and the air conditioning on.
