Northwest Now- Up In Smoke
Up In Smoke
The topic is the air pollution problem in Pierce County and the role wood burning stoves play in it. A more robust education and enforcement campaign is underway because federal transportation dollars are at risk if the Tacoma/Pierce County "non-attainment zone" isn't brought into compliance with federal clean air standards in the next year. Northwest Now visits an air monitoring station and a fireplace shop, then leads a studio discussion with air quality regulators who are responsible for public education, and the enforcement crackdown on those who violate burn bans.
