Posted: Dec 28, 2017 9:05 AM

The Butte County Air Quality Management District is requesting residents in the Chico area to voluntarily refrain from using their woodstoves and fireplaces on Friday, December 29, 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.

Important Note: Woodstove and fireplace use within the Chico City limits is restricted by a City ordinance. For more information, please contact the City of Chico at: 530-896-7241 or by email wood-burning@Chicoca.gov.

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.

Please remember that it is always prohibited to burn household trash, chemically treated or painted wood at anytime. If you have any questions or would like further information please contact Jason Mandly at 332-9400, ext 108, 7:30am-4:30pm, Monday through Friday. Information is also available on the District website at www.bcaqmd.org and on the District Hotline Number at 332-9409 or toll free at 855-332-9409.
