Air Quality Update  (9/22/2014)

Residents in Lane County have been experiencing poor air quality conditions for several weeks as a consequence of multiple wild fires burning in our state. But this week, we will see a change in the weather patterns, bringing rain showers later this week. We now expect that both fires and smoke will be greatly reduced with the rains, and this will bring back the Air Quality index to "Good" levels.

Residents of Lane County can continue to monitor air quality daily at the LRAPA (Lane Regional Air Protection agency)website at or on twitter @LaneRegionalAir.
