Air Quality Advisory for P.G. Over

Friday, January 13, 2017 @ 2:20 PM

Prince George, B.C. – The Air Quality Advisory for Prince George   has ended.

The Ministry of the Environment  says  the change in weather pattern has  improved  conditions  and  helped  clear  high levels of PM2.5 from the airshed.

As of 1 this afternoon, the  24 hour rolling average of PM 2.5 concentrations had dropped to 23.2 micrograms per cubic meter, the Provincial  target is 25 micrograms per cubic meter.

The  rescinding of the  AQ advisory  means the City’s Free Fare for Clean Air  program,  which  allows for free transit  when there is an air quality advisory,  will come to an end at midnight tonight.
