Air quality has improved in the valley. Effective January 8, the Mesa County Health Department has lifted the ban on burning in non-Environmental
Protection Agency approved wood stoves.
Although the restriction has been lifted, health officials encourage you to support good air
quality by following these recommendations:
- Avoid vehicle idling
- Carpool when possible
- Combine errands into one trip
- Avoid waiting in drive-thru lines
Inversions are common this time of year and future restrictions may be issued.
Please check the
Mesa County Health Department’s website for additional details and updates.
