Northwest Indiana is under caution for high ozone levels after the Department of Environmental Management warns about elevated ozone levels on Tuesday.
Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties are all advised to conserve energy in order to help protect individuals sensitive to poor air quality.
IDEM encourages people to walk, bike, carpool and use public transportation, avoid using the drive-through and combine errands into one trip.
Avoiding the use of lawn mowers, turning off engines after 30 seconds of idling and keeping the air conditioner temperature to 75 degrees will all help reduce ozone.
