The Butte County Air Quality Management District is requesting residents in the Chico area to voluntarily refrain from using their woodstoves and fireplaces on Wednesday, December 27, 2017 from 12:01 am to the following midnight.

The voluntary curtailment has been prompted by an air quality forecast of Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups for the Chico area.

Residential chimney smoke is a major source of wintertime air pollution in Butte County. More than a nuisance, the microscopic particles in smoke have been linked to serious health injury. The good news is that your choices can do a lot for cleaner air.
