Air Quality and Wood-burning Appliances

AQAWBA LogoThe Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District Don’t Light Tonight Program is a voluntary program during fall and winter in which the District asks residents not to use woodstoves and fireplaces when air pollution approaches unhealthy levels. For information on this program and other air quality issues for the region that includes Woodland, see the district’s web site at www.ysaqmd.org. The District also issues Spare the Air Alerts during hot weather.
