Wood Smoke Work Group
NTAA and EPA established this work group to collaborate with Tribal, state, EPA and other involved entities to research and implement a national residential wood stove program to address both the indoor and ambient air quality impacts of wood smoke, as well as address other wood smoke related issues on Tribal lands.
Many Tribal members often use older wood stoves and fireplace inserts that are not EPA certified as a significant source of heat in their homes. Because EPA certified wood and pellet stoves emit approximately 70% less pollution than older wood stoves, a successful changeout campaign will reduce local emissions and improve indoor air.
