Open burning is a source of air pollution that is regulated by the Division of Air Quality (DAQ). There are statewide rules in place that regulate open burning activities to help minimize emissions and ensure that the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) are met. Recent modifications to these rules change the open burn periods and include a statewide requirement to obtain a permit from the local county or municipal fire authority prior to burning.  Permits may be issued between March 30 and May 30 and between September 15 and October 31 these dates are subject to change based on current fire conditions.  Open burning with out a permit and not in accordance with the Regulations for Residential Open Burning is subject to citation.
