Four State CleanAir Alliance offers tips for reducing ground-level ozone levels

On Tuesday, Earth Day 2014, the Four State CleanAir Alliance urges residents to do their part in reducing ground-level ozone levels.

At a press conference members of the Alliance introduced several methods that the public can easily complete to help alleviate increasing levels of this potentially harmful gas.

It's all part of the "Clean Air Action Plan".

Simple measures, such as unplugging unused electronics, turning up your thermostat slightly during summer, and stopping when hearing the "click" indicating your gas tank is full at the pump are just some of the examples given by the Alliance.

Officials say ground-level ozone levels and pollution are becoming an increasing concern for Joplin.

"Sometimes we think about it as just being a large city that ground level ozone is a concern, but if affects rural and smaller communities as well," says Robin McAlester of the Four States CleanAir Alliance.

"Hopefully by getting the plan out there, getting the education out there to the community maybe we can drive those numbers down enough to stay below that level," says Dan Pekarek, also of the Four States CleanAir Alliance.
