GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) - The spring open burn season is underway in Mesa County, which can impact air quality in the valley.

Merry Ellen Boom, an environmental health specialist at MCPH said, “We want to be able to know if the air quality is good for our residents and our community, and we want to be prepared if a pollution incident is coming or if a wildfire incident is coming.”

Burn season lasts in Grand Junction until April 30, but runs until May 31 for the rest of Mesa County.
