Spare The Air Begins May 1st

Each year from May through October, the air districts across the Sacramento region (Sacramento Metro, El Dorado, Feather River, and Placer) join Yolo-Solano to help reduce the production of ozone through the Spare The Air program.

Northern California summers are full of hot and sunny days, which produce greater quantities of ground-level ozone or “smog.” When ozone pollution is high, even healthy people can experience negative impacts. The Spare The Air program encourages residents to drive less, and take actions to help reduce the production of ozone.

Temporary symptoms may include irritation of the eyes, nose or throat, coughing, chest tightness or breathing difficulties during exercise or outdoor activities.

On days when the Air Quality Index (AQI) is regionally forecast to reach 126 or higher, a Spare The Air alert is issued. When an alert is issued, residents can do their part by:
• Walking or riding a bike for short trips, especially in the morning when ozone pollution is at its lowest.
• Taking public transit – it’s easy on the air and the wallet.
• Sharing a ride with a co-worker or friend.
