Air Quality Health Alert Plan
Air Quality Health Alert Plan (AQHAP) establishes guidelines and procedures for reducing emissions of ozone-forming compounds into the atmosphere, both on “Alert” days as well as throughout the ozone season. City Departments, through voluntary compliance with the AQHAP, will modify certain activities on Air Quality Health Alert days.
