Ozone
Ozone Standards, Ozone Health Watches/Warnings
· Residents who want more information about alternative forms of transportation, rideshare programs or who wish to receive electronic notification of Ozone Health Watches or Ozone Health Warnings when issued should call Valley Metro at (602) 262-Ride (7433) or visit http://www.ValleyMetro.org .
· Valley Metro also has an online rideshare matching system, www.sharetheride.com , to ease the process of finding a carpool, vanpool or bike-riding partner. The Web site allows users to find potential commute partners who travel to and from the same general area and who share similar work schedules.
· The Maricopa County Environmental Services Department will report ADEQ's daily ozone forecast along with a map of air monitoring sites on its Web site at: http://envquery.maricopa.gov/AIR/airday.asp

During the summer months, all Valley residents are encouraged to reduce ozone-forming emissions by:
· Using car pools, mass transit, walking or bicycling to reduce driving, especially on hot summer days.
· Telecommuting one or more days per week.
· Minimizing the use of gasoline-powered lawn and garden equipment during daylight hours, and being careful not to spill fuel.
· Waiting to fuel vehicles in the cooler evening hours.
· Making sure your vehicle's tires are properly inflated and the wheels aligned.
· Participating in your local utility's energy conservation programs.
· Sealing containers of household cleaners, workshop chemicals and solvents, and garden chemicals to prevent vapors from escaping.
