Four Highest Eight-Hour Ozone Concentrations in 2022
as of January 20

Use this form to retrieve the four highest eight-hour ozone concentration averages from data collected at IDEM monitoring sites beginning December 14, 2005 through today. Although this is our most current data, it is not considered official until it has been certified by our technical staff. This information is updated hourly. All times shown are in Local Standard Time.

The table below lists the four highest daily maximum eight-hour ozone concentrations measured in 2022 in each community where the IDEM measures ozone. Concentrations that are rated Moderate or higher are color-highlighted based on the EPA-defined Air Quality Index colors. (See Interpreting the AQI.) The fourth-highest average is in bold black (unless it is highlighted). All ozone measurements are in parts per billion. Times are shown in 24-hour format and correspond to the beginning of the eight hour average.

Interpreting the AQI

Air Quality Index

Each NAAQS pollutant has a separate AQI scale, with an AQI rating of 100 corresponding to the concentration of the Federal Standard for that pollutant. Additional information about the AQI and how it can be used is available from the EPA's AirNow web site.

Place your mouse pointer over the scale displayed above to view information about the Air Quality Index, and each of the rating levels.

The actual index calculation is different for each parameter measured and is specified by the EPA. The following table shows the various breakpoints used in calculating the AQI.
