Air Quality Advisories, Burn Bans lifted

Air Quality Advisories and Burn Bans in the region, both on and off the Nez Perce Reservation have been lifted as of Monday morning.


Air quality has improved throughout the Nez Perce Reservation, though wildfire smoke may continue to move in and out of the area throughout the day and overnight. Some areas may be more impacted than others, so please take appropriate precautions, said the Nez Perce Tribe Air Quality program.


Due to improved air quality, the Air Quality Forecast and Caution with Burn Ban has been lifted for northeast Idaho County, off the Nez Perce Reservation. DEQ will continue to monitor wildfire activities and smoke impacts throughout the region.

Additional information for health recommendations, air quality, and wildfire can be found on the Idaho Smoke Information Blog at http://idsmoke.blogspot.com/. Please see the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare links under the Smoke and Health tab on the blog for additional health recommendations for sensitive groups, communities, schools and daycare facilities.
