Both Sutter and Yuba Counties Now Meeting the Fine Particulate Matter Health Standard

Both Sutter and Yuba Counties Now Meeting the Fine Particulate Matter Health Standard

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) is redesignating the Yuba City – Marysville area from nonattainment to attainment for the fine particulate matter (PM2.5) national ambient air quality standard. The “Yuba City – Marysville area” includes all of Sutter County and the valley and foothills of Yuba County, the mountain areas of Yuba County already attain the standard. This decision by US EPA signifies that local air quality is improving and is now meeting the health based PM2.5 standard

Fine particulate matter reductions are essential because the tiny particles can penetrate the lungs and cause respiratory and cardiovascular problems, damage to lung tissue, cancer and premature death. Sources of PM2.5 include combustion sources like cars, trucks and engines, and smoke from residential wood stoves and fireplaces, agricultural burning, and wildfires.

“Hard work by local residents and businesses to reduce emissions has resulted in cleaner air for all of us” said Christopher D. Brown AICP Air Pollution Control Officer of the Feather River Air Quality Management District.

Yuba and Sutter county residents can receive email or text air quality forecasts by signing up at www.fraqmd.org. For more information please visit the Air District’s website or call (530) 634-7659.

‘Walnut Buying Period’ Announced in Sutter County

‘Walnut Buying Period’ Announced in Sutter County

In accordance with Sutter County’s new ordinance to deter theft of commercial walnuts during the harvest period, Sutter County Agricultural Commissioner Mark Quisenberry has announced the official “Walnut Buying Period” starts Saturday, November 1, beginning a window period that will end April 30, 2015.

The Walnut Theft Prevention ordinance adopted this year by the Board of Supervisors prohibits the sale or possession of walnuts by non-processing walnut buying operations within the boundaries of Sutter County until the Agricultural Commissioner, in consultation with local growers, determines the harvest of the Chandler variety of walnuts has been concluded.

The ordinance was established to deter thefts from commercial walnut growers by creating a time frame for walnut purchases and the use of documentation to identify the growers of walnuts.

“For walnut buyers and sellers during this period, proof of ownership is a mandatory requirement of the ordinance, specifically a proof of ownership form approved by this office,” said Mr. Quisenberry. The form is available at the Agricultural Commissioner’s website.

There are more than 34,000 acres of walnuts planted in Sutter County, with a value in excess of $143 million. As the price of walnuts has increased, so have the thefts.

There are similar ordinances in place in Butte, Tehama, Glenn, and Yuba counties, and in several counties to the south.
