Weather & Air Quality
On July 27, 2021, the City of Chico installed a Purple Air monitoring station and RainWise weather station that report real-time weather data from the downtown area.
The stations are installed on top of the Fred Davis Municipal Center (City Hall) and allow continuous monitoring of weather conditions during the fire season. This data helps residents make the best health choices when air pollution levels are at unsafe levels. This project was funded by the Butte County Air Quality Management District (BCAQMD) Community Air Protection (CAP) Support Grant.
