South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) is the air pollution control agency for all of Orange County and the urban portions of Los Angeles, Riverside and San Bernardino counties, among the smoggiest regions of the U.S.

They are committed to protecting the health of residents, while remaining sensitive to businesses.

Their annual “Check Before You Burn” program is aimed at improving Southern California’s air quality during the winter months by restricting wood burning in residential fireplaces on days when air pollution levels are high.
