Ohio EPA Discontinues Statewide Air Quality Advisory

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Due to improved air quality conditions, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency has canceled its statewide Air Quality Advisory that was issued Monday. 

Smoke from Canadian wildfires is now having less of an impact throughout the state, the Ohio EPA said in a news release Tuesday. Particulate levels may remain elevated in isolated areas.

The air quality in the Youngstown area, which had been designated as “unhealthy” Monday, improved to “moderate” as of 9 a.m. Tuesday.
