No-burn season is just around the corner

The valley’s no-burn seasons starts Nov. 1.

Before firing up a wood burning stove, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District asks residents to check at San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District.

Depending on air quality forecasts, the air district prohibits residential wood burning, including the use of fireplaces, wood-burning heaters, pellet stoves and outdoor devices such as fire pits.

Burning wood on no-burn days can result in a fine. Exceptions are granted to residents without access to natural-gas service or for whom burning solid fuel is their sole source of heat.

The wood-burning curtailment program is critical in minimizing levels of harmful particulate matter in the eight-county air basin, according to regional air quality officials.
