Track Idaho Wildfire Smoke
The haze is thick over the Magic Valley due to the numerous wildfires burning in the west. Idaho’s Department of Environmental Quality allows you to track where the smoke is coming from, air quality conditions, and offers health and safety tips.
The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality is a state department created by the Idaho Environmental Protection and Health Act (Idaho Code Title 39) to ensure clean air, water, and land in the state and protect Idaho citizens from the adverse health impacts of pollution.
The DEQ has created a special website, Idaho Smoke Information, that tracks wildfire smoke across the state of Idaho using state, tribal, and federal resources. It features an interactive map that shows where current wildfires are and the air quality for Idaho towns.
