Burn Day Status Information
permit holders can only burn on permissive burn days as determined for the North Coast area.
public must call the District's Burn Day Status line each day at (866) BURNDAY or (866) 287-6329 to
determine whether burning is allowed in each of the three burn zones designated within the District.
District bases its determination on the findings of
CARB's Metorlogical Branch
, which specifies each day of the year as a Permissive Burn Day
, or a No-Burn Day
for each air basin or other specified area under Title 17, California Code of Regulations. Burn day decisions are driven
by air quality estimates of air quality for the next day (the decisions are made the afternoon before they are effective)
and by weather conditions.
