Summer camp directors limit the time in which kids are outside and air control representatives are asking Valley folks to be mindful of pollution.

Maricela Velasquez said, "One lawnmower produces as much pollution as 40 vehicles running for the same time."

The air control district also suggests public transportation, and reminds folks to stay away from the drive-thru, as idling your car is bad for the environment.
