Lambton under Special Air Quality Statement

Lambton Public Health is encouraging residents to take the proper precautions to protect their health on days when air quality is poor, following Environment and Climate Change Canada’s issuance of a Special Air Quality Statement for Lambton County.

High levels of air pollution are possible through the week as a result of smoke plumes from forest fires in Quebec and northeastern Ontario.
