There’s no escaping the harmful effects of inversion season

Salt Lake City — It’s coming. Watery eyes, prolonged cough, and a serious Vitamin D deficiency, all courtesy of Utah’s inversion season. While driving less and eliminating wood burning are the herculean tasks necessary to diminish northern Utah’s air quality problems, a local group is hoping to improve the immediate life of at least one Utah family through a vacation giveaway.

Alliance for a Better UTAH launched its “Escape the Inversion” contest this week, aimed at increasing awareness of the harmful effects of breathing bad air, while drawing attention to the efforts it will take to improve air quality across the state.

“Clean air is a luxury not often found in northern Utah this time of year,” said Maryann Martindale, executive director. “Our giveaway will provide at least one Utah family with a much needed escape from the winter inversion while reminding the state legislature that their constituents demand commonsense, mainstream approaches to cleaning the air.”

The contest winner will receive a 7-day stay in the clean, crisp air of Sedona, Arizona at the Sedona Summit Resort from February 1 to February 8.

Contest runs January 2, 2015 to January 15, 2015. A winner will be announced Friday, January 16, 2015. Full contest details are available at:
