July 4th Fireworks Advisory

June 30, 2016

On this Independence Day weekend, the Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District is reminding citizens that it is illegal in Louisville Metro to shoot off airborne and/or exploding fireworks in your yard or neighborhood. 

While professional, permitted shows -- such as the Waterfront Park fireworks show on Sunday – are permissible, trying to replicate that experience for your family and friends at your home is against the law and may harm lives and property. 

In addition, excessive smoke from fireworks displays can impact people who might be suffering from breathing ailments such as asthma, emphysema, or COPD. So we encourage you to consider your neighbors before you light that fuse.
