Document Description
This is a rule amendment project existing District Rule 4901 (Wood burning Fireplaces and Wood Burning Heaters), and also, to adopt New District Rule 3901 (Fees for Registration of Wood Burning Heaters). Proposed amendments to rule 4901 would encourage owners and uses of older more polluting wood burning heaters and wood burning fireplaces to transition to less polluting alternatives. This project includes: Amendments to Rule 4901 language, proposed new rule 3901, enhancements to the district's Burn Cleaner Incentive Program, and enhancements to the district's forecasting activities to support the tiered curtailments. This transition would benefit Valley air quality throughout the wood burning curtailments because clean wood burning heaters produce significantly less emissions than older polluting heaters and wood burning fireplaces.
