Emergency burning limits
Due to the Governor's Emergency Proclamation, outdoor and permit-exempt agricultural burning (orchard prunings, ditch banks, fence rows, irrigation canals, windblown tumbleweeds) is banned statewide through Sept. 30, 2021. Agricultural burning with a written permit is allowed. For a burn permit issued by a local clean air agency, contact them.
We issue permits for commercial agricultural burning and we make daily burn decisions to help reduce the health effects from smoke. Check current air quality conditions.
Agricultural burning can be an important part of your business. We want to help you do it safely and legally.
Your agricultural burn permit requires that you check the daily burn decision before burning. It's our job to review current and forecasted air quality conditions, and determine whether burning is allowed in your county and zone for that day.
The Agricultural Burning rule (Chapter 173-430 WAC) was revised effective May 13, 2019.
