In the San Joaquin Valley, our air-quality challenges are more difficult than those in any other region in the nation. Thanks to residents and businesses, we have made significant progress, and air quality in San Joaquin Valley today is the best in recorded history. Since 1980, air pollution from businesses has been reduced by more than 80 percent. However we all realize that our work is not done. The Check Before You Burn program has been our most effective and least costly clean-air strategy. This short video was produced by the people charged with the responsibility of cleaning up our air -- the Governing Board of the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District. We hope that you will watch this video, and be inspired do your part to help clean up our air. - Seyed Sadredin, APCO
