Open Burning (Outdoors)
Air quality staff work to minimize the impacts of smoke and protect public health from the three areas of open burning: agricultural, prescribed and rural residential. The District is concerned about the impacts on public health that can result from open burning.
Residential Wood Burning (Indoors)
Indoor fires from woodstoves, inserts or fireplaces can be a source of particulate pollution. The District has a voluntary program to help reduce emissions from woodburning and also a regulation to prohibit the installation of non-certified woodburning devices.
