Corpus Christi Air Quality Impacted by Ozone Levels and Agricultural Burns

Impact Expected to Last Throughout the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The City of Corpus Christi is experiencing moderate ozone levels caused by warm temperatures and abundant afternoon sunshine.

Particle pollution levels may remain elevated today due to seasonal burning activities in Mexico and Central America and aerosols associated with gas flaring and industrial activities in portions of the Gulf of Mexico, across southwestern parts of Texas, and along the Coastal Bend.

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) recommends residents unusually sensitive to particle pollution and ozone consider reducing their activity levels or shortening the amount of time spent active outdoors throughout the remainder of the week.

The City will continue to monitor the air quality as conditions warrant.
