AUGUSTA – The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has issued an air quality alert for today.
Ground ozone levels are expected to reach unhealthy levels Monday from Kittery to Acadia National Park.
Elevated ozone levels can cause reduced lung function and make it more difficult to breathe. That’s especially true for children, the elderly and people who live with respiratory illnesses.
People are being urged to avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the afternoon.
