is mandatory to obtain a valid burn permit for all open outdoor burning for the purpose of disposing dried, natural
vegetation grown on site. District permits are not required for small recreational or ceremonial campfires. A
Non-Standard Burn Permit allows individuals, businesses, or government agencies to dispose of approved
materials by open burning.
A Non-Standard Burn Permit provides authorization to burn a maximum of one pile (10' in diameter) of approved materials on the ground at a time. Burn hours are 6:00 a.m.
until one hour before sunset on Permissive Burn Days only. A Smoke Management Plan may be required for larger pile sizes, multiple piles, or other large projects.
Some Non-Standard permits may also require the responsible party to obtain a Burn Authorization Number from the District
prior to ignition. Burning is authorized from 6:00 a.m. until one hour before sunset on Permissive Burn Days. Call
1-866-BURNDAY or 1-866-287-6329 or check our website for burn day status.
