Year In Review 2016

Our journey toward cleaner air once again showcased the exceptional traits for which San Joaquin Valley residents are well known. With hard work, ingenuity, and the desire and ability to overcome challenges, we had another record-setting year for clean air; acquired and invested significant dollars to fund clean air projects; and took bold action to bring common sense improvements to the federal Clean Air Act.

With the return of more typical weather to the Valley during the winter months, particulate matter levels once again trended downward. A heartfelt Thank You goes out to Valley residents for their continued compliance and cooperation in helping us implement Check Before You Burn, the residential wood burning program − one of the Air District’s most important public health measures.
