Hazardous Air Quality in Klamath Falls

August 2, 2015, 7:44 am.

As of 7:30 this morning, air quality had worsened over much of southwestern and south central Oregon, as depicted in this figure of the color coded 24-hour average AQI.  As expected, air quality remained unhealthy to very unhealthy in Medford and Shady Cove.   Provolt moved into the Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups category. Grants Pass and Cave Junction remained only in the moderate range.  However, Klamath Falls moved into the HAZARDOUS category and even as far away as Lakeview moved into the moderate category.


  1. I'm here because this link; http://www.ashland.or.us/News.asp?NewsID=2871
    said you provide specific information about Ashland Or air quality but I found nothing. Please provide this information.
    Thank you

  2. Jim, Sorry for the delay answering your question. Ashland got a little ahead of us with their announcement and the monitor is not yet installed. It's on its way though and should be available later today if all goes well.
