[ARCHIVED] Burn permits starting 6-1-2023

burnPermits

INCORPORATED
Just a reminder, the burn period for the incorporated areas set by DAQ (Division of Air Quality) is now closed and will reopen Sept 15. All burning inside city limits will have to wait until then. This Is a DAQ policy not an FFSL one.

UNINCORPORATED (speaking for Uintah and Daggett) 
Starting tomorrow, June 1st through Oct 31st burning in the unincorporated areas of the counties requires a permit issued by the Division of Forestry Fire and State Lands. My counties, Uintiah and Daggett have been chosen to test the Division's attempt to bring the permit process into the digital age. The application process starts at the same website as used in the spring and fall DAQ burn periods https://air.utah.gov/OpenBurning/form/index.php. This may be confusing to some because the permit comes form FFSL not DAQ, but it seems the majority of the public already know of this site and go here for permits already, that's why it was chosen.

 THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN FFSL AND DAQ PERMIT PROCESS is the FFSL permit is NOT approved and returned by an automated system. Each FFSL permit is reviewed and approved by a real person and permits are not guaranteed, meaning they can be denied due to mainly weather factors and some may still require a site visit by the permit issuer before approval.

AGRICULTURE EXCEPTIONS
There are still a few exceptions to CERTAIN AND SPECIFIC types of agriculture burning.  As found in State code: No Permit is required for burning of  "Fence lines on cultivated lands, canals, or irrigation ditches. (i) the burning does not pose a threat to forest, range, or watershed lands; (ii) due care is used in the control of the burning; and (iii) the individual notifies the nearest fire department of the approximate time the burning will occur". Just because they say it's an Ag burn does not qualify for the exemption.
