Air Quality Index

  • The fall is more prone to poor air quality due to California’s wildfire season. The District monitors the Air Quality Index (AQI) on the site www.airnow.gov.
  • When AQI is ORANGE (101-149, Unhealthy for sensitive groups), programs will be held, but participants with increased health risks should consider reducing their exposure by choosing less strenuous outdoor activities or shortening the time they are active outside.
  • When the AQI is RED (150 or higher, Unhealthy), the pool will be closed and all programs canceled. The District will issue refunds/credits for classes canceled due to the Air Quality.
  • To be notified of pool closures, please sign up for the Alert Center on our website.
