Hospital admissions drop with wood burning restrictions

Historically, the San Joaquin Valley is known as one of the most polluted air regions in the state—not to mention the country—due to its bowl shape that collects and holds emissions.

However, a recent study by the California Air Resources Board shows that SJ Valley hospital admissions have reduced for adults ages 65 and older. This correlates directly with the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District Rule 4901 that was fully implemented in 2003, according to the Air District.
