(KSL News) -- New changes in the state's air quality alert system may help reduce the foulness of our dreaded inversions.
Starting today, the Utah Division of Air Quality will use a more proactive procedure for the Wood Burn Program. In the past, the Division issued a "yellow burn" advisory when the air quality reached a level unhealthy for sensitive individuals.
The Division will now issue a "yellow burn" advisory when the Air Quality Index is moderate, pollution is increasing, and an inversion is expected to continue.
Today is a yellow burn condition for Salt Lake, Davis and Utah Counties.
