IDEQ orders Franklin County advisory

UPDATE: 12-7

The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has extended an air quality advisory for Franklin County.

Although air quality improved somewhat over the past 24 hours, high pressure will regain a stronghold over the area. As a result, air quality will remain in the “moderate” category.

IDEQ said latest air quality monitors indicate there may be no relief from the high pressure inversion conditions for the next week.

High pressure is expected to cause rising pollutant levels and deteriorating air quality as the week progresses.


The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Franklin County.

The advisory restricts residential wood burning to certified or exempt stoves only. It will remain in place until air quality has improved.

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality has issued similar burn restrictions.

The National Weather Service predicts a high-pressure system that moved into the area this week will remain for the next week.
