Smoke from wood stoves and fireplaces is responsible for the majority of air pollution in Portola. The Greater Portola Area has been designated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a federal “nonattainment” area. This means that air pollution exceeds National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for fine particulate matter (PM2.5).

INDOOR BURN STATUS: OK to burn in all wood heating devices
