Agricultural burning can be an important part of your business. We want to help you do it safely and legally.

Daily agricultural burn decision

Smoke from a permitted burn rises out of the area and does not impact neighbors.

If you have an agricultural burn permit, you must check the daily burn decision before burning. We review current and forecasted air quality conditions to decide whether burning will be allowed in each county and zone for the day.
