WEST MICHIGAN — (FOX 17) — Tuesday will bring with it the return of the heat and humidity. This also signals a return to stagnant air and an increase in the ozone levels. This has prompted the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to declare Tuesday an Air Quality Alert Day for Tuesday, August 20, 2013.

People are advised to refrain from activities that would elevate the ozone levels. This includes, but is not limited to, using gas-powered lawn mowers, filling up your car’s fuel tank, and using lighter fluid on a grill.

Also during times when the ozone levels are elevated, people with asthma and young children should avoid being outside for extended periods.
