Alert weekend in the Tulsa area. The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality says both Saturday and Sunday are Ozone
In all, Tulsa has had five Ozone
Alert days this week. Tulsa violated federal ozone standards on Tuesday and Wednesday for the first time since 2003. This weekâ€™s ozone violations could contribute to Tulsa being put on the federal government's "dirty air list" of polluted cities.
Officials say Tulsa area residents can help by limiting their driving on Ozone
Alert Days. In addition, homeowners can avoid mowing with gasoline powered lawn mowers. Motorists are being advised if you must fill your gas tank be sure you donâ€™t spill any gasoline. Fill up your gas tank after dark if possible and turn up your homeâ€™s thermostat a few days before leaving home this weekend.
