Knozone Action Day in Indianapolis
A Knozone Action Day has been declared for Marion County and several other counties today due to high temperatures and light winds. These factors combined reduce air quality and the level of ozone emissions could exceed federally mandated standards.
During a Knozone Action or Air Quality Control Day, Hoosiers are encouraged to make environmentally-friendly choices like:
- Turning off the car engine when idling for more than 30 seconds
- Avoid using the drive-thru
- Setting the air conditioner to 75 degrees or above
- Walk, bike, carpool, or use public transportation
- Wait until after 7 p.m. to buy gas or mow your lawn
- Don’t use any chemical products to clean your home or treat your garden
