DNR Issues Air Quality Advisory For Area

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources has issued an Air Quality Advisory for south central and southeast Wisconsin until 3:00 p.m. Sunday. The advisory affects residents living in Fond du Lac, Columbia, Dodge, Green Lake, Marquette, Sheboygan and Washington Counties.

Due to stagnant air increasing fine particle concentrations, the air quality index is expected to reach the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” level. Sensitive groups include children, elderly people, individuals with respiratory and cardiac problems, and anyone engaged in strenuous outdoor activities for a prolonged period of time.
