AUSTIN (KJCE) -- The Austin area is under an Ozone Action Day Thursday.

Officials with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued the alert Wednesday afternoon. An Ozone Action Day means atmospheric conditions are expected to be favorable for producing high levels of ozone air pollution in the area.

There are many ways to cut down on ozone pollution - including sharing a ride, walking or riding a bicycle, taking your lunch to work, avoiding drive-through lanes, conserving energy, and keeping your vehicle properly tuned.
