The state Department of Environmental Quality issued the dates when open burning is possible this year. They have also reminded us of the regulations which require completion and approval of an on-line permit application for anyone wanting to open-burn for any reason. Open burning is considered daily by the DEQ and is allowed only if the “Clearing Index” is high enough to allow it. Completed and approved permits must be on-site with the responsible person at the location of the open burn. Click here
