Wood Heating Devices

During the wood heating season (Oct - Mar) if air quality is declining, a restriction may be issued on the use of wood heating fireplaces, wood stoves and fireplace inserts. That information will be provided here.  
Requirements must be met at all times, including a limit on the amount of visible smoke coming from your chimney. Please review these wood heating requirements.
