Earlier today, the NJ Department of Environmental Protection issued an air quality alert due to the high level of unhealthy particular matter in the air for Morris County.
As a result, the Denville Township Recreational fields shall be closed today, June 7th, 2023.
The other recommendations from the State of New Jersey and the Township Health Officer are as follows: 

1) People with heart or lung disease, older adults, children and teens should take any of these steps to reduce their exposure:

  • Avoid strenuous outdoor activities.
  • Keep outdoor activities short.
  • Consider moving physical activities indoors or rescheduling them.
2) Everyone else should take any of these steps to reduce thier exposure:
  • Choose less strenuous activities (like walking instead of running) so you don’t breathe as hard.
  • Shorten the amount of time you are active outdoors.
  • Be active outdoors when air quality is better.
The Township will continue to monitor the air quality as a result of the smoke for the next 24 hours and will make a determination on or before 2:00 P.M. on Thursday if the fields will be re-opened.
