PHOENIX - An Ozone Health Watch has been issued for Tuesday.
Those who are unusually sensitive should avoid spending prolonged amounts of time outdoors or overexerting themselves.
During a "Health Watch," the highest concentration of pollutants may reach the federal health standards.
A "High Pollution Advisory" is issued when pollution may exceed those standards, warning residents to take extra precautions.
To help reduce ozone and take action during Arizona’s ozone season, be extra conscious of how you use energy throughout the day.
The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality suggests unplugging unused appliances and placing outdoor lights on timers to avoid overuse.
Fueling your vehicle after dark when it is cooler can also help alleviate ozone issues, as well as parking your car instead of waiting in drive-thru lines at restaurants and banks.
Carpooling or taking public transportation is another method of being environmentally and economically conscious.
