An air quality health watch has been issued for Wednesday. High particle pollutant matter, combined with stagnant air, has led to the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality issuing the watch.

People with heart or lung disease, along with children and the elderly, should limit time outdoors.

A health watch is issued when pollutant matter may approach federal limits.

A woodburning ban will go into effect and the Maricopa County Air Quality Department will enforce the mandatory “No Burn Day” restriction within the county from midnight to midnight during the health watch.

Residents and businesses must refrain from burning activity during this 24-hour period. This restriction includes individuals and businesses that have burn permits for open burning.
