As the weather grows colder, residents can help improve the air quality and their woodstove heating efficiency by following recommended burning practices.
Moisture meters are now available at the Village Office for residents to borrow free of charge. Burning wet wood in a woodstove can cause excess smoke. Use a moisture meter to check if your firewood is dry enough to burn. It should have a moisture content of 20% or less.
Check your mailbox for a copy of the “Cleaner Air for Our Community” brochure. The Village has mailed this out to provide information about wood smoke and health, how to dry firewood, and tips for heating your home. View the brochure here.Search again
