Air Quality Improves

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Benton Franklin Health District reports air quality in the area has improved to "Good" to "Moderate". This means there are no general restrictions on outdoor activities, but anyone unusually sensitive to air pollution may still need to limit prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. The district is no longer advising that school districts in Benton and Franklin Counties suspend outdoor activities for elementary school and younger children.
