Wood Smoke Awareness Survey

Chimney smoke from residential wood burning is a major source of winter time air pollution in Butte County, particularly in Chico.  Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) promotes voluntary restrictions in wood stoves and fireplaces between November and February on certain days to improve air quality.

Click here Chico Wood Smoke Survey to complete the 10 – 15 minute survey.  This survey will help BCAQMD evaluate community-wide awareness about wood smoke advisories to reduce winter wood smoke pollution in Chico and provide a healthier environment for our community. 

BCAQMD is encouraging community groups, students, faculty, local businesses and employers to help us get the word out about this important survey that assesses knowledge and behaviors associated with winter wood heating.   The BCAQMD is interested in hearing the views of both wood heater users and non-users.

This project has been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee of the California State University, Chico and is being conducted as a partnership between the BCAQMD and CSU, Chico Department of Health and Community Services.
