Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District


Current Burn Status

Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District is, by law, required to achieve and maintain healthful air quality for its residents. This is accomplished by establishing and enforcing air pollution control rules and regulations in order to attain all state and federal ambient air quality standards and minimize public exposure to airborne toxins and nuisance odors.

Don't Light Tonight

To help reduce peak soot levels and protect the public health, Yolo-Solano AQMD runs an annual program called Don't Light Tonight. From November 1 through the end of February each year, the District produces daily forecasts of expected particulate pollution. If the forecast exceeds a certain threshold -- 25 micrograms per cubic meter -- Yolo-Solano AQMD will call a Don't Light Tonight advisory. This advisory asks residents to refrain from using their fireplace or wood stove, as wood burning is a significant contributor to particulate pollution in our region.

Don't Light Tonight advisories include all residents of Yolo County and the northeastern portion of Solano County, including the cities of Vacaville, Dixon and Rio Vista, and their surrounding areas.
