The open burn policy was changed in 2013 to meet the revised standards of the State Department of Air Quality (DAQ). The DAQ no longer allows permits to be issued on an annual basis as had been done previously. Recent modifications to these rules change the open burn periods and include a statewide requirement to complete an online application with the DAQ and to obtain a burn permit from the local fire authority. The DAQ open burn permit application and UFA issued burn permit is required prior to conducting any residential burning.
