December 24, 2018

PHOENIX (AP) — Arizona officials have issued another air pollution advisory for Maricopa County.

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality says pollutants in the air are expected to top limits set by federal health standards Monday.

A similar advisory also was issued Sunday.

ADEQ officials say the high pollution advisory is for fine particulate matter made up of small particles found in smoke.

The agency recommends that people limit outdoor activity while the pollution advisory is in effect, especially children and adults with respiratory issues.
