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.
