Dust advisory issued for Clark County

Clark County’s Department of Air Quality has issued a dust advisory for Thursday, Feb. 22, to advise residents and local construction sites of the possibility of elevated levels of blowing dust due to the forecast of high winds in our area.


Airborne dust is a form of inhalable air pollution called particulate matter, or PM, which aggravates respiratory diseases. Under windy conditions people with heart or lung disease, older adults and children may feel better staying indoors as much as possible because they could be at greater risk from particulates, especially when they are physically active, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  

County Air Quality officials will continue to monitor conditions and will post updates on the forecast page of the DAQ website
