Air Quality and Wood-burning Appliances
The 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.
Neglected Swimming Pools and Standing Water
The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District is responsible for controlling populations of mosquitoes and other disease carriers to protect public health. The district has an active program to monitor and treat neglected swimming pools and other areas of standing water where mosquitoes may breed. For information on these programs, see the district’s website at www.fightthebite.net.
