Sign up for Ozone Alerts


The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) notifies the public a day in advance when conditions are forecasted to be Level Orange, "Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups," on the U.S. EPA Air Quality Index (AQI).  Ozone alerts are issued so that citizens, businesses, and industry can take steps to reduce the pollutants that contribute to ground-level ozone formation.  The TCEQ will also issue an ozone alert within 30 minutes of monitored ozone concentrations in the region reaching unhealthy levels (An 8-hour average monitored level of 76 ppb or a 1-hour average of 125 ppb).
