Update on high ozone levels near Boulder
Declaration of emergency being considered
by Pinedale Online!
March 22, 2019

We are being told that Wyoming Governor Gordon is in the process of declaring an emergency due to the high ozone levels at the Boulder monitor. The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is meeting today (Friday, March 22, 2019). Based on the Boulder monitor readings this afternoon, they expect to make a decision on declaring an emergency by 5PM. If declared, it goes into effect immediately. If that occurs, then the Environmental Quality Council (EQC) must have a hearing within 48 hours, most likely in Pinedale. Then EQC has two days to make a decision based in information provided at the hearing. If an emergency is declared, we can expect notification late today. Based on the fact that only the Boulder monitor seems to be affected, the air quality experts are looking for an isolated source that could be causing the high readings. The Environmental Quality Council will be coming to Pinedale in the next few days to have a hearing. Industry has or is being notified.
