The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control will issue daily ground-level ozone reports starting Sunday.
“During the warmer months, ground-level ozone is our state’s most widespread air quality concern,” said Myra Reece, chief of DHEC’s Bureau of Air Quality, in a statement.
High levels of ground-level ozone can be dangerous for adults and children, especially on hot days when the air is stagnant, DHEC explains.
The reports will be made available online, through text message or telephone.
