Air Quality Action Items and Alerts

What can you do right now?

  • Follow the air quality readings for particulate matter (PM) and ozone daily. It’s easy; just click the links on our home page. What do you notice when we experience wildfires in the region, or open burning in certain areas of the valley, or inversion periods in the colder months?
  • Share your concerns when air quality dissipates by writing a letter to the editor (LTE) to the Daily Sentinel  letters@gjsentinel.com In your own words, write about why clean air is important to you and your family. Note the Sentinel limits LTEs to 300 words or less.
  • Let our elected officials hear from you about why air quality matters by contacting the Mesa County Commissioners https://www.mesacounty.us/commissioners/, the Grand Junction City Council http://www.gjcity.org/city-government/city-council/,  the Palisade Board of Trustees, and the Fruita City Countil https://www.fruita.org/citycouncil/page/council-members
  • VOTE in November for the candidate who best represents your values, including air quality and climate change policies.
