YSAQMD’s COVID-19 Update

5-5-2020 Update on Yolo-Solano Air District’s Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

While the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve in the region, the state, and the country, the Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District (District) will continue to provide essential services to all stakeholders, including permit processing, administering the burn program, the asbestos program, and air quality monitoring.

The District is committed to providing the maximum potential safeguards to keep employees and stakeholders well, and to slow and prevent transmission of the virus.   To that end, the District office closed to the public on March 18th.  Our staff will continue to perform their work functions while limiting their time in the office by working remotely when possible to respond to essential District business.

Please submit all documents (permit applications, throughput reports, asbestos surveys, etc…) either via e-mail or regular mail.

If you need assistance, please call 530-757-3650 and leave a message – somebody will return you call as soon as we are able.
