Washington Smoke Map

*The map above is not able to display all state air quality monitors. Click here to see all monitors in Washington: WA Ecology Air Monitors

Note: Some users might notice intermittent discrepancies in colors shown on the map of air quality monitors above, and those reported on the Department of Ecology's official page. This is because Ecology believes their method of calculating the air quality category (i.e. “Good”, “Moderate”, Unhealthy” etc) is more protective of public health in Washington. If in doubt as to which better represents public health risk, use the more stringent of the two (i.e. the map showing worse air quality).

8/11/2014 Ellensburg hit hard by smoke today

After largely being spared from serious smoke impacts from the 2014 wildfires, Ellensburg is experiencing very poor air quality today.  Many sites throughout central and eastern Washington are registering poor air but Ellensburg is worst of all at this time.  We're working to analyze how long this episode may last.  Until then, take a look at the good information we have linked on the SMOKE AND HEALTH tab; including information about using a particle mask if needed.
