Clean up the air for improved health

The Rotorua urban area (see orange zone in map below) regularly exceeds the National Environmental Standards for Air Quality in the winter. The main cause of our poor air quality is smoke from home heating fires. The most vulnerable to the negative effects of air pollution are the very young, the elderly and those who already suffer from respiratory conditions such as asthma.
