carpa -- Air Quality Impacts from the Aspen Fire

Posted: 26 Jul 2013 17:16:21
The Aspen Fire is impacting communities as far away as Mammoth
Lakes, CA. 

Smoke from the Aspen fire in the Southern Sierra is affecting
Mariposa, Oakhurst, Auberry, and Mammoth Lakes. The greatest
impacts are overnight and into the early morning. However,
periods of heavy smoke are occurring intermittently. Twenty-four
hour average concentrations for particulate matter in Mammoth
Lakes have been in the Unhealthy range. 

ARB and the US Forest Service are monitoring the smoke and the
Forest Service has a team of public outreach specialists
providing information about the fire directly to residents. A
news release from the Sierra National Forest is available here:

The California Air Response Planning Alliance (CARPA) was formed
in 2006 by the California Air Resources Board, the US
Environmental Protection Agency, and the Governor's Office of
Emergency Services. CARPA's mission is to provide actionable
incident response information to protect public health and the
environment from the impacts of accident or deliberate releases
of hazardous compounds into the air.
