Clean air action display at City Hall

A clean air action display will be at Cedar Springs City Hall next week.

A clean air action display will be at Cedar Springs City Hall next week.

Interested in learning about ways you can keep the air cleaner, save money, and protect the health of your loved ones this summer? Then please stop by Cedar Springs City Hall at the corner of Main and Ash Streets, between Tuesday, May 26, and Monday, June 1, and look for the Clean Air Action display.

The display includes information about ozone and fine particulate matter, two pollutants that, when elevated, can trigger Clean Air Action Days. Clean Air Action Days are forecast when air pollution is expected to reach or exceed levels where those who are sensitive to it (children, the elderly, those with heart and lung disease, and those who are active outdoors) may start to experience symptoms.

In West Michigan, air quality meteorologists most often forecast Clean Air Action Days due to high ozone—or smog—levels, which increase on hot, humid, sunny days with little breeze. On those days, the West Michigan Clean Air Coalition asks that the public voluntarily refrain from or delay pollution-producing activities such as mowing lawns and refueling cars. We also encourage the public to carpool, ride the bus (the Rapid offers free bus rides on Action Days), and avoid idling. If you’re interested in taking home information about the Clean Air Action program, feel free to grab a tip card or one of our promotional freebies, which includes our web address and the number for the Clean Air Action hotline.

If you miss the Clean Air Action display at the City of Cedar Springs, it will also be making several appearances at Whitecaps games this summer, as well as other local events, and please watch for our TV commercial or listen for our jingle on the radio. For more information about the Clean Air Action program, please visit our website at www.wmcac.org.
