SCDHEC Issues Daily Ozone Forecasts

Beginning this month, the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (“DHEC”) is issuing daily forecasts for ground-level ozone.  DHEC hopes the information will lead residents to “adjust their daily transportation habits by carpooling, reducing idling time, driving less, and using outdoor equipment in the evenings,” especially during peak ozone periods.  DHEC also intends to declare “ozone action days,” when it will encourage all residents to reduce their outdoor activity levels and recommend that those with respiratory conditions stay indoors.  DHEC’s ozone forecasts may be accessed here.
