During the colder months, certain weather patterns can lead to strong inversions and stagnant air. During these poor air quality episodes, excessive wood-burning can create conditions that are unhealthy for sensitive groups. The Butte County Air Quality Management District (District) will issue a Check Before You Light advisory for these days. When an advisory is issued, the District asks that residents voluntarily refrain from using wood-burning devices if possible. You can Check Before You Light by visiting butteairquality.com, calling the District Hotline Number at 332-9409 or toll free at 855-332-9409, and by checking @bcaqmd on Twitter.
