The Valley’s most important regulation for wintertime air-pollution reduction begins its 11th season Nov. 1.
Check Before You Burn, which has resulted in historically clean wintertime air quality in the Valley, continues through February. This wood-burning curtailment program is a critical tool in minimizing harmful particulate pollution.
