Air quality and home heating.

​Domestic fires are a major cause of poor air quality which occurs at certain times of the year in Rotorua - especially during cold weather. The biggest source of our air pollution is from solid-fuel burners for home heating - wood burners, multi burners and open fires.  The Rotorua Air Quality Control Bylaw will remove solid fuel burners that are not clean-air approved and help improve our air quality.

 Bay of Plenty Regional Council (BOPRC) is responsible for managing the region's air quality.
