Those interested in knowing what air pollution levels are in Franklin County can now check on an Idaho Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) website or call a 24-hour hotline at (208) 239-5028.

Based on federal standards, DEQ calculates a daily Air Quality Index (AQI) based on the most current 24-hour average concentration of particulate matter (PM2.5), according to Melissa Gibbs, Airshed Coordinator at the DEQ office in Pocatello.

The Franklin County area currently does not meet the national 24-hour PM2.5 air-quality standard, she added.
